Check the car before buying. It's simpleThe Ministry of Internal Affairs, together with the Central Information Technology Center, created the opportunity to receive a free report on the vehicle of interest to us. This report comes from the database of the Central Vehicle Registry, so it is accurate and contains detailed data about the vehicle since it was first registered in the country. This can protect us from actions of unscrupulous sellers who provide false information about the technical condition.

What can we learn about the dream car or motorcycle that we plan to buy second-hand. The information we get from the easy-to-use program includes:

– technical data such as engine size and power or type of fuel, number of seats, curb weight of the vehicle or permissible payload

- Production year

– dates of mandatory technical inspections passed by the vehicle, including information on whether they are up-to-date

- odometer readings recorded during technical inspections (collected at the CGR since 2014)

– information on whether the vehicle has a valid compulsory civil liability insurance to third parties

– the number of owners in Poland and an indication of the areas in which the vehicle was registered

– information on whether the previous owners were a private individual or a company,
