The Police National Computer (PNC) is updated whenever a vehicle is reported stolen - that's 160,000 times a year - and sends these updates to AutoCheck daily.
AutoCheck searches for PNC details of the car you're interested in. If it's there, we'll alert you and contact the police force that recorded the vehicle as stolen to find out the current situation.
Why you shouldn't buy a stolen vehicle
You should never buy a car if it might be stolen. The original owner (or their insurer) is entitled to reclaim their vehicle, even if you bought it in good faith. Your only option would be to sue the seller - if you can find them (which is unlikely, given they are selling stolen vehicles).

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?
