Tonight I was having a wee play on a new to me website for stolen cars. So I put the reg of my tin top in and it came back all correct for make, model and not stolen. Next I put in the reg of my Marlin and it came back as not stolen but I was a wee bit concerned when the make said Dutton.
I put it down to this website not being very accurate, after all it is free. But just to be on the safe side I checked on DVLA and all the details are correct, big sigh of relief. However I decided to enter the same reg and put Dutton for the make and was concerned when it came back as correct! It says first used 2011 with one MOT recorded which it failed.
I phoned a number for DVLA on the V5 but they are closed, I will try tomorrow. Watch this space.
