Get peace of mind with a car history check you can trust

What is an HPI Check?®

  • An HPI Check is a vehicle check provided by HPI Ltd that scrutinises the history of any motorised vehicle registered in the UK including cars, vans and motorbikes.
  • The HPI Check Report will alert you to any worrying information held against the vehicle by finance and insurance companies, the DVLA, the Police and other industry bodies.
  • The HPI Check is probably the most important check you will do before buying a used car and should be your first line of defence against vehicle fraud.
