Never agree to buy a used car without checking its history first.
Free to download, My Car Check allows you to view the details of any UK registered car, van or motorcycle by searching using the registration number.
However, this information is not enough to make an important decision such as buying a used vehicle.
Since 2005 we’ve provided peace of mind for millions of people. From only a few pounds you can avoid buying a potentially un-safe, stolen or debt-ridden vehicle, saving yourself time, money and effort, not to mention the unthinkable consequences of buying an unsafe car.

• Make & Model

• Body Type
• Fuel Type
• Date of Registration

Ratings and Reviews
Thank you for retrieving my historic look up data, albeit making it very tedious to get to or move into my current list. A select all would be nice 😉
Also thank for you improving the initial results to show a snapshot of the data.
I know many of us don’t fit your use case for this app and you are keen to find new revenue from the app, but please look at your existing customer base and what their needs are. You must see how the app is being used in your analytics and there are so many things you can add that your existing customer base would ‘want’ and pay for. Instead of charging for data that’s easy to obtain for little to no cost else where and that your existing base is likely not that interested in.
Developer Response ,
Hi, many thanks for your feedback. The extensive UI/UX research we conducted when we were designing the new app suggested a tabbed design was most useful, however we will take your feedback and discuss. Unfortunately we are not permitted to show some data whereby we are giving it away for free. This is because of the legally-binding contracts we have with suppliers. When we set about re-building our new website and app, saving, converting and presenting old data was a big challenge. So we carried out research to understand the need for it. This research suggested that there was little value in a customer accessing old checks, particularly free look-ups, therefore we did not build it in to the new website and app. We hope that you check back with us in the future and are able to utilise some of the useful and interesting features we'll be releasing over the coming months. Many thanks.
I love the MyCarCheck app
I love the MyCarCheck app as it gives me access to a wealth of information about cars (nearly new and fairly old ones), such as MOT History, Car Tax Bracket & Annual Amount of Car Tax Payable, Engine Size, Date the vehicle was registered etc. AND IF ONE REGISTERS ( A fairly quick in-app registration with a valid email address and the choosing of a password), one can save within the app the HISTORY of the Vehicle Searches one has made. I WILL DEFINITELY RECOMMEND the app, as it alerted me to potential problems with a car that my other half & I were considering purchasing. EXCELLENT APP!
Developers attitude stinks
Wow. The passive aggressive release notes seem to be written by the most arrogant and ungrateful people. First they delete your data - both free and paid searches, then they launch a new app that is missing some essential features, then they begrudgingly bring back the old data in a way that isn't very useful because it cannot be searched, and finally they expect us "mere users" (paraphrasing) to be grateful. What a fluck up.
Wake up and smell the coffee! You made some mistakes - your research and ideas of user experience best practices are simply wrong. If you want to do it properly read Apple's Human Interface Guidelines. Don't double down on this ill-conceived new app - fix it! If only the developer spent as much time fixing the app as they do replying to complaints on here.
Developer Response ,
UPDATE: Thanks dr-pop for sharing your feelings and the passion you have for our app. Sorry you thought we were being aggressive in our release notes, that was certainly not our intention, we were trying to poke fun at ourselves for misjudging the impact the initial version of our new app had on our loyal users. Apologies My Car Check Team.
