Your AutoCheck report will tell you how many previous keepers / owners a vehicle had and when the ownership changed.
Look out for several changes in a short period - it could mean the car had a mechanical or other problem and so was sold on quickly.
The name of the keeper is covered by Data Protection and is not released to AutoCheck by the DVLA. However the names and addresses of the last two keepers are shown on the V5C, the Vehicle Registration Certificate. You can contact those keepers to ask about the car.

Help and advice
Some relevant frequently asked questions
I have purchased a Multiple Check and I
haven't used them all, why can't I do any more checks?
It is more than likely you have either registered your insurance, in which case any remaining checks will become void, or you have passed your 60 day time limit and your account has expired.
If I purchase a multiple check and I do
not wish to use them all can I get a refund?
No, a multiple check is so you can check UP TO 5 vehicles. Any unused checks are non-refundable.
When does the 60 days start? When I
register, purchase or when I check the first vehicle?
The 60 days start from the date of purchase of the AutoCheck.
Can you buy a check over the phone?
This service is an online service only, so we are unable to carry out a check over the phone.
