Important next steps!

For your own peace of mind, please read through the checklist below before you buy the vehicle

Check the paperwork

  • Validate the VIN (Chassis number) and Logbook using HPI Fraud Guard in the box above. It's important that you check the documents and Chassis number yourself. DO NOT rely on the seller to provide these details.
  • Check the Chassis numbers under the bonnet of the car and on the windscreen both match the number shown on the Logbook.
  • Make sure the Logbook is genuine - a genuine document will have a DVLA watermark.
  • Is the seller the rightful owner of the vehicle? Ask to see ID and check the details against those shown on the Logbook.
  • Does the address you're buying the vehicle from match the address shown on the Logbook? Always try to meet the seller at the registered address. Avoid meeting in neutral locations such as carparks or laybys or allowing the seller to bring the vehicle to you address.

Is it mechanically sound?

  • Consider having a mechanical inspection to check for any hidden damage or fault that might otherwise go unnoticed. Book an inspection.
  • Check the service history. A full service history is proof of regular servicing and a good indicator that the vehicle has been well maintained.
  • Never buy a car without taking it for a test drive first. Read our Test Drive Checklist so you know what to look our for. Remember, you'll need to be insured to take a car on a test drive. You can get test drive insurance here.

Buying the vehicle

  • Never pay cash for a vehicle! Always use a traceable method such as a banker's draft.
  • For extra protection, ask the seller to sign a receipt. You can print our HPI Car Purchase Contract here for added peace of mind.
  • Be realistic. If the price sounds too good to be true then it probably is.

Drive away, legally

  • Road tax is not transferable. Make sure you tax the vehicle before you drive it. It is an offence to drive without tax and doing so can incur a penalty.
  • Make sure you're insured to drive the vehicle. Driving without insurance can incur a heavy fine and points on your license. Don't risk it. Get a quote.

The previous keepers should match the V5C document, and the count does not include the current keeper, or any dealers. The next owner of this vehicle will be owner 6


CO2 ratings

The CO2 bandings are intended as a guide to the emission of this vehicle and equate to the previous or current Vehicle Excise Duty bandings. CO2 bandings only apply to cars first registered on or after 1st March 2001. If this vehicle is registered prior to this date, the Vehicle Excise Duty payable will depend on the car's engine size. New banding ranges will apply for Vehicles registered on or after 1st April 2017 and after their first tax payment, a fixed Vehicle Excise Duty is charged.

Vehicle description

Provides confirmation of the vehicle's physical details as first recorded by the manufacturer. HPI Check confirms the make, model, door plan, fuel, engine size/number and transmission. If any of these do not match either the vehicle or the V5 (logbook), let us know so that we can investigate. For further information see FAQ.

Does the vehicle description below match the details on the V5 (logbook) and appearance of the vehicle? If not, you should query the discrepancy with the seller and/or the DVLA. You can contact the DVLA directly on 0300 790 6802. Please note that the DVLA will only change its data based on instructions from the registered keeper.

Your HPI Check guarantee will not be valid if the description below is different from the vehicle and/or the details on the V5 (logbook). Please refer to our FAQ for more information.

Vehicle Tax

Tax StatusNot taxed
VIN match

HPI Check allows you to enter a vehicle's VIN (chassis number) as well as its license plate number. Provide both and we'll tell you whether they correspond with DVLA and DVA (N. Ireland) records. If they don't match you may be looking at a vehicle whose identity has been 'rung' or 'cloned'. Always check that all the vehicles VIN's match each other and its documentation. For further information see FAQ.

We've run a check using the license plate provided. However we strongly recommend you update the check with the VIN (chassis number) in order to protect yourself against clones and to make sure you get all the details.

Police stolen

HPI Check provides information from the Police National Computer on vehicles that are currently recorded as stolen. These vehicles remain the property of the individual or organisation from whom they were taken. Never buy a vehicle that is flagged on this register, because you stand to lose it, together with the money you paid for it. For further information see FAQ.


Insurance theft

Each year 150,000 vehicle thefts are recorded by insurers. HPI Check will tell you if the vehicle you are looking to buy has an outstanding insurance interest recorded against it. Even if you buy this vehicle in good faith you may not be able to legally own it. For further information see FAQ.


Outstanding finance

Nearly two thirds of new vehicles sold every year are bought using some form of finance agreement . Some of these agreements will grant the finance company an 'interest' (i.e. ownership) in the vehicle which you will need to ensure has been paid off by the previous keeper before you buy it. With over 7 million current finance agreements registered with HPI, you need to make sure that the vehicle you are buying is not subject to one of them. If it is, you can use the details provided to contact the lender and determine the current status of the loan and any claim on ownership the finance company may have. For further information see FAQ.


Security watch

This register typically records vehicles at high risk of fraud or theft (e.g. hire cars, demonstrator vehicles and garage forecourt stock). The Security Watch register is primarily used by the Police, finance companies and the motor trade, to ensure that these vehicles can be traced if someone steals them or attempts to sell them fraudulently (for example - perhaps without first settling an outstanding agreement). The registering party will be alerted that an HPI Check has been made and they should contact you within the next working day, please contact us if this is not the case. You should not purchase a vehicle that is recorded on this register, until you receive confirmation that it is all clear from either the registering party or us.


Plate transfer

This register will let you know if a vehicle has had a legitimate license plate change since April 1990. People change plates to personalise their vehicles, but they can also be changed to hide a vehicle's history. HPI Check includes an enquiry check against all previous plates, to identify alerts that may still be associated with the vehicle you are buying. For further information see FAQ.

Vehicle ownership

There are many circumstances where the 'owner' of a vehicle is not the 'keeper' as recorded on the DVLA V5C document (logbook). These circumstances are described in more detail in the notes accompanying each alert register.

Police stolenLicence plate not currently recorded by the police as stolen
Insurance theftLicence plate not recorded by an insurer as a theft
Outstanding financeLicence plate not currently recorded as having an active finance agreement or loan outstanding
Security watchLicence plate not currently recorded as 'at risk' on the security watch register
Plate transferNo previous plates recorded

Condition alert

This register warns that a vehicle has been subject to an insurance total loss claim, or 'written-off', because of damage or because it has been stolen and not recovered. For vehicles written-off since January 1997, the HPI Check provides an insurer damage classification, A to D, ranging from those vehicles which should never go back on the road, to those which can be be safely repaired. Two new classifications were added in October, 2017, N and S which should over time replace the C and D classifications. Category N and S better describe the type of damage to the vehicle rather than the cost of repair.

Category A - Scrap only, parts are not salvageable, vehicle not permitted on the road and should be crushed.
Category B - Extensive damage, beyond repair. Parts are salvageable, vehicle not permitted on the road and should be scrapped.
Category C - Vehicle is damaged but repairable, cost of repair exceeds the pre-accident value of the vehicle.
Category D - Vehicle is damaged but repairable.
Category S - Structurally damaged but repairable, its important that these vehicles are repaired professionally.
Category N - Repairable non-structural damage.

In the case of Category C, between April 2003 and October 2015, the government mandated a Vehicle Identity Check (VIC) before the vehicle could return to the road. This was to prevent vehicle cloning. Note that a VIC did not check the safety or quality of any repair. Only an MOT is currently required before a vehicle is permitted on the road.

In addition to the Condition Alert, you will be advised if the vehicle has been registered with DVLA as having been scrapped.

If you are considering purchasing a vehicle on the register, we strongly advise that you have it independently inspected by a reputable company for structural and mechanical integrity prior to purchase. For further information see FAQ.


Condition inspected

This register was introduced in 1990 and gives details of 'written off' vehicles that have since passed an independent structural examination. The inspection will have been carried out in accordance with a specification agreed with the Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre (Thatcham). The seller may be able to provide an inspection report from one of the approved inspection companies. There may be a separate fee for this report. HPI Check will identify which company carried out the inspection and the reference number of the report.

Vehicle documents

Stolen V5C registration documents (logbooks) are in circulation. Any vehicle with a stolen V5C is likely to be cloned, rung or stolen. Provide the V5C registration document serial number and issue date so the HPI Check team can confirm if it's been recorded as stolen.

The fuel consumption figure shown is taken from the official test results obtained from this vehicle type when new. It is intended to provide a standard figure for comparing the relative fuel economy of different vehicles of a similar age and condition and does not represent the average fuel consumption that will be achieved on the road. A number of factors not included in the official new vehicle test will affect the fuel consumption achieved on the road including: vehicle age, how it has been maintained, road/weather conditions and driving style.

Fuel cost (estimated) for 12,000 miles: £1605

A fuel cost figure indicates to the consumer a guide price for comparison purposes. This figure is calculated by using the combined drive cycle (town centre and motorway) and average fuel price. Re-calculated annually, the cost per litre as at January 2019 is as follows - petrol 130p, diesel 134p and LPG 63p.

VED for 12 months: £160

Vehicle excise duty (VED) or road tax varies for vehicles registered before the 1st April 2017 according to the CO2 emissions and fuel type of the vehicle. For vehicles registered after 1st April 2017, they will have a fixed rate charged after the first tax payment. Vehicles with a list price of over £40,000 will also be subject to a supplemental charge for their first 5 years

Vehicle Valuation

Our vehicle valuation will help you determine the market value of the vehicle you want to buy. The valuation provided indicates the market value of your chosen model, not the actual vehicle being checked and therefore may vary. If no valuation is provided it is because we do not currently hold this data.

Vehicle mileage check

'Clocking' or turning back the mileage reading on a vehicle is a major problem in the UK, costing an estimated £100 million per annum. HPI operates the National Mileage Register ® (NMR), containing over 200 million recorded mileages. HPI cross-references all mileages previously recorded against the vehicle (if any) along with any mileage you provide, and will let you know if a discrepancy has been identified. Make sure you provide an accurate mileage to avoid any false discrepancies. Click here for more information.

You have not provided the vehicle's current mileage so it has not been possible to check if it's consistent with the data recorded on the National Mileage Register (NMR).

No mileage discrepancy is currently indicated by the National Mileage Register (NMR).
