you can apply for a log book from the post office as this is not proof you own the car,do a hpi check on the car ,it will confirm it is not stolen or wanted by the police at this present time .

If you phone your local police station expressing concern over a car you are buying they will be more than happy to check it out and tell you if they have any interest in it :winky: ,save yourself £25 as well . :whistling:

Eh No!

You cannot just conduct a pnc check for anyone that comes into a station with an intetest on a car.

when you say stolen recovered, was it your own,

or are you looking to buy one from a salvage dealer ?

if it is from a salvage place, last i heared was if you buy without log book ,

the police are notified by dvla when you apply for one.

they then write to you and want to see all receipts of repaired parts

to make sure your not handling stolen parts.

you also have to do a check at one of their approved garages who do a vehicle check, similar to an mot, but it dont cost the price of an mot.

more like ten !!!!!

"they will check it out for you "

Yes but the only way of "checking it out" IS by doing a "PNC" check, and are under instructions not to do this as all our checks get audited over the year, and some are returned to you to check what the pnc check was done for........So a good pocket book is required. I have argued in the past that it could be a part of preventing and detecting crime, by finding a lost or stolen car, but the senior management team stress "no, not for an enquiry off the cuff from an interested buyer in the police station".
