Dodgy Motors

Postby POMMReg » Tue Aug 09, 2016 8:44 pm

Being asked to run "number" checks on Minors - both UK & Abroad - I occasionally encounter some that are obviously "duff" (usually picked up by either body or engine numbers, in some cases BOTH).

PLEASE - regardless of entering them onto database - record these numbers, and keep in a safe place.
Further investigations uncovered it was an inside job!!

First need to do an ID check - ensure the vehicle is genuine via body stamped chassis number - don't rely on the detachable chassis plate.

Depends if post 7/65, have to go by body number.

DVLA like detailed Certificates and pics.
