Looking for a free car check?

There are many places you can go to to get a car history check – the majority of them are free. 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 or cheap car check will cover everything you need to know. 

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

Our vehicle check 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 your check, just enter a registration number to receive your free car check and history report.

We offer more in our car checks

Understand a car’s future, not just its past – Even paid car checks won’t give you information on car running costs. For example, cost of repairs, service costs and what is likely to go wrong on a future MOT check. 

Whilst free checks may give you MOT check history, also take care to look at a car’s MOT future using Car Guide. We’ll give a cars current MOT status and also show you which parts might need to be replaced soon.

Why choose our free car check?

As a business, we’re determined to ensure that motorists are better prepared when buying a used car. Unfortunately, current car check 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 free car check site in the UK. 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.
