- In order to qualify for the AA Car Data Check guarantee, you must supply the VIN (Chassis number) and V5 registration document details before you buy the vehicle. In addition we recommend that you ensure the V5 document is genuine by checking for the presence of the watermark - the initials 'DVL' appear in several places.
- Do all the details match the V5 (registration document) and appearance of the vehicle? If not we recommend you query the discrepancy with the seller or the DVLA. We recommend that you do not buy the vehicle before you have resolved your query. Your AA Car Data Check guarantee will not be valid if the descriptive data does not match the physical vehicle and or the Vehicle log book (V5). For further information see FAQ.
