The UK's most detailed Free Car Check

There are many places you can go to get a car history check. But just as it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking you’re getting a great deal on a car, it can be easy to believe that getting that free vehicle check will cover everything you need to know.

The truth is that many free car history services only scratch the service of what’s going on with a vehicle – which is where Car Guide can help. Our free vehicle history check gives you peace of mind when looking to buy a car.

Our Buyers Report gives you the full MOT history and everything you need to know about the history of the vehicle. It only takes a few seconds to get yours; just enter a vehicle registration number to receive your free car check and history report.

We offer more in our free car check

Our AI-powered tool scans 700 million data points to provide a full picture of a vehicle’s history. 

 Our free car check includes:

  • Full MOT history check
  • Ex-salvage register check
  • Imported/Exported check
  • Number plate and colour changes
  • Date V5C last issued
  • Detailed technical data

Whilst other free vehicle checks may give you MOT history information, also take care to look at a car’s MOT future. We’ll give a car’s current MOT status and also show you which parts might need to be replaced soon – even paid car checks won’t give you information on car running costs. With Car Guide, you can understand a car’s future, not just its past.

Why choose our car history check?

As a business, we’re determined to ensure that motorists are better prepared when buying a used car. Unfortunately, other checking sites believe this is as simple as checking outstanding finance or scrapped statuses. 

We believe all car buyers should have guidance on how to ensure the car they are buying has been properly maintained, which is why we show what services and repairs you need to check the paperwork for. 

We build our reports using more data checks than any other UK free car history check. Our quality free car history reports come with data guarantee as we give you everything you need to know about a car, just by giving us the vehicle registration number.
