How do I get information about a vehicle?

You can use DVLA's Vehicle Details Enquiry service to find out information about a vehicle.

With just the registration number you can find out:

  • Tax Status
  • MOT Status
  • Make
  • Date of first registration
  • Year of manufacture
  • Cylinder capacity
  • CO2 emissions
  • Fuel type
  • Export Marker
  • Colour
  • Type approval
  • Wheelplan
  • Revenue weight

With the addition of the 11 digit reference number held on the V5C registration cerificate (log book) you can also find out the vehicle's tax rates.

We have further information about vehicle enquiries in our guide.
