    Default Vehicle checks

    There is somewhere on the DVLA site that you can put the reg number in and get details of a car, but I'm blowed if I can find it. Can anyone help! Time is short so quick reply appreciated.

    I know it was not as quick as you wanted, but found it in the end.

    RAC

    If you follow that link and put in the reg number, you can see the make and model of the car, without paying the vehicle check. The only problem is I tried it on Mark's number plate and the only thing it picked up was that it was a 2004 year car, but on mine it picked up all the details.

    Hope it helps

    Cheers Neil, exactly what I was looking for.

    The RAC one is a bit 'sparse'
