Vehicle Identity Check

A Vehicle Identity Check (VIC) is the quickest, most reliable way to receive a comprehensive history of a car you may be considering to purchase.  Finding the right used car can take time and considerable patience, but checking a vehicle’s car history is one of the most important tasks you can do before handing over any money.

A VIC can open your eyes to whether a vehicle has been previously written-off, scrapped for cash, stolen, clocked or even if it is subject to outstanding finance payments that pose significant stumbling blocks.

In order to answer all of your questions regarding the Vehicle Identity Check scheme VOSA has produced a pamphlet.  Click the following link to download a PDF document:
