    Hi
    as of this moment VX do not have a central computer base for mileage/service dates.
    even chevrolet/daewoo have a central database for service/warrenty work done!

    you will have to contact the garage in your service book to confirm mileage when the car was serviced.
    iirc you can place the car on tech2 to see what mileage has been recorded by the ecu.

    The best place is the agency that contacts you after you sell a car for details, alas i cant think of the name, but this might jog someones memory.

    EHH???

    No government agency contacts you for vehicle details before or after a sales/purchase of a vehicle.. The DVLA hold the records but it is your legal responsibility to keep them informed of any change in the vehicles keepers or colours/engines etc.. they maintain a voluntary mileage log but few people take the time to complete that box as it's voluntary.. They do not contact anyone to request information as per the vehicles mileage..

    Which agency where you refering to??

    The only contact I've had after selling a car is from a company that does HPI checks, to confirm the mileage on the car when I sold it - and check that it hasn't been clocked between me selling it and the new owner receiving it. But as Mark says,this isn't a government agency, it's a private company that does HPI checks - of which there are a good number.

    There is an agency now that operates on behalf of the DVLA to validate mileages between sales - every dealer who is part of a certain association (cant remember which one) has to inform them when and to who/from a car is sold.

    I was contacted by them when I traded in my old coupe. I contacted both DVLA and the dealer to verify what was going on. It is voluntary, and it is a private agency, but they are working on behalf on the DVLA.
