Car ownership and previous owners

All about car ownership

Owners data via CarVeto and DVLA

There are thousands of queries relating to a cars ownership and this number has spiked over the last few years ever since DVLA ceased the inclusion of the previous owner on the V5C registration document (otherwise known as the V5C log book).

In Mid 2018, DVLA made this historic change to car documentation.

You may be wanting the contact information of your cars last owner. Good reasons include:


  • Find out when the car was last serviced (this may have been excluded from the rubber stamped service book)
  • How often the previous owner serviced the car
  • If the car had any major mechanical faults
  • When the cambelt was replaced (this is often the number one reason due to the expense of a replacement belt)
  • Other legal reasons

CarVeto offers the nearest data for car ownership. The car ownership data includes information like:

  • Date of sale and purchase of the previous owner
  • Date of purchase of the existing owner
  • Date of registration
  • Car age
  • Date of reg
  • The area postcode (not exact postcode) or city/region where the car is currently registered with DVLA via the V5C logbook. 
Plus, there is a unique MOT advisory and MOT history check report that clearly outlines tests, dates and advisory items that are not readily available in the public domain without the V5C logbook number of MOT test numbers.
