How can I check if a car is stolen?

Enter the registration number above of any vehicle registered in Great Britain and get a free stolen car check. This will tell you if it has been reported stolen to the police.

How many cars are stolen each year?

There are over 100,000 vehicle thefts annually according to the Home Office. The numbers have risen in recent years. It therefore makes sense to run a free stolen check before you buy a car.

What happens if I buy a stolen car?

Once the police have identified its location they will visit you, explain the situation and take the vehicle into their possession so it can be returned to its owner. You will lose the car and likely the funds you paid for it.

What stolen car information does a Total Car Check provide?

It tells you if the car has been reported as stolen or not. If stolen then the report will tell you which police force the car has been reported to and when.

What should I do if a car I’m checking is stolen?

If it is a car you are looking to buy then don’t go through with the sale. You could also call the police by dialling 101 to report that are vehicle you have been enquiring about has been stolen. If you have already bought the car then contact the police by dialling 101.
