Thinking of buying used? Some steps to take...
If you're buying a used car, it's very important before you part with any hard earned cash, you have a good idea where your prospective runaround has been. Do this quickly and easily via an MOT history check which will give you an understanding just how well the car you're considering performed during all previous MOT tests in England, Scotland and Wales (post-2005).
Many people don't know how to check MOT history but it's quick and simple to do. Visit gov.uk with the vehicle's registration number. The check is completely free and won't cost you a penny.
You'll find out how the vehicle performed in all previous MOT tests; the mileage logged at each test; parts that failed (or minor issues with parts); the test location; date of the test.
