There could be a sinister reason behind a car’s true identity

DVLA released statistics that it has made a revenue of £2 billion by selling personalised number plates in recent years. Vehicle information experts have been warning innocent buyers ever since DVLA started selling personalised number plates, becuase it is one of the easiest ways to hide the vehicle’s previous past.


1 in 4 used cars have at least one number plate change in history. Not all people change their plates to hide the true identity of the vehicle but unscrupulous dealers or sellers do so.


To get rid of these personalised number plate problems, vehicle information experts recommends each buyer perform a number plates search before buying it. Mostly number plate changes are made to hide the finance records, previous accidental history, cloned vehicles.
