    Default Registration Number

    Just out of interest, how much info can be gleaned online from a registration number. Anyone got any links that reveal information when a reg number is input ?? (legal ones of course)

    Have you been bad

    Askmid will confirm if your car is on the database and a little bit. If you know people in garages or insurance then its easy for them to do a HPI lookup and get a fair bit.

    For the normal Joe Public, not that much can be gained

    The RAC used to have a free feature whereby it told you make, model and number of previous owners. Unfortunately you have to pay for it now.

    The only other free one I know of is :

    As sophos has said, not a lot to be had. However,...............

    A couple of years ago at work, we had cars "left" on the premises by customers, at least we thought they were. We applied to the DVLA at a cost of £20 per car to trace the owners to give them a chance before we towed them away. You do have to have just and reasonable cause to request this info and even we failed more than once. The DVLA treat each request on its merits.
