Nearly two thirds of new vehicles sold every year are purchased 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 interest the finance company may have. For further information see FAQ
We recommend that you use the details provided to contact the finance company and determine the current status of the finance secured against this license plate.

- If you are buying from a dealer, you may come across this type of finance on your Vehicle History report. Talk it over with your dealer, check their liability and get confirmation in writing that they will clear the finance on the car you are buying. Unit Stocking is a common type of finance agreement used by motor dealers to enable them to fund the vehicles on their forecourt.

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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
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 stolen||Licence plate and VIN not currently recorded by the police as stolen|
|Insurance theft||Licence plate and VIN not recorded by an insurer as a theft|
|Outstanding finance||Licence plate and VIN currently recorded as having an active finance agreement or loan outstanding|
|Security watch||Licence plate and VIN not currently recorded as 'at risk' on the security watch register|
|Plate transfer||No previous plates recorded|
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.
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.
|Condition alert||Licence plate and VIN not recorded by insurers as a 'total loss' (write-off)|
|Condition inspected||Licence plate and VIN not recorded as a repaired insurance 'total loss'|
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.

Fuel Economy - Used Vehicles
CO2 emission figures (g/km)
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: £981
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 April 2020 is as follows - petrol 120p, diesel 124p and LPG 63p.
VED for 12 months: £150
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

Our vehicle valuation will help you determine the market value of the vehicle you want to buy. The valuation, where available, is based on the vehicle being in an average condition for its age, that you are buying the vehicle from a dealer and the mileage supplied by you. If you have not provided a mileage, it is estimated to be the equivalent to 10,000 miles per year. 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. HPI Valuations are provided by CAP. For further information see FAQ.
This guide valuation is for a vehicle of this make and model with the mileage supplied by you, of average condition for its age and bought from a dealer.

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