Checking Date of Previous Keeper Change

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there is a free check that gives the date of the last keeper change?

Many years ago, it was possible to find out for free on the RAC website but this service stopped a while back. It is possible to check the date of the last V5 issued when checking if the car is currently taxed but this date may just refer to a new V5 being issued due to a new address rather than a keeper change. I just checked a friend's car that he has owned from new in 2006 but when checking if taxed it says the last V5 was issued in 2011 so this isn't a reliable guide to the date of ownership change.

Experian auto check via Autotrader will tell you , or CAP live valuation . Both tell you when last keeper was .

The DVLA site shows the last V5 issue date.  In your case could this have been the switch from blue to red V5s?

I know plate and address changes generate a new V5 but for most cars It is accurate.

Hi Frank, sorry for the delay, I've only just logged on again tonight. That was a bit of a nightmare that I try to forget! I got it tested and the headgasket was shot so I ended up selling it to a mechanic who reckoned he could repair it himself as he'd only have to foot the bill for the parts.
