vehicle data 

CDL Vehicle Information Services (CDL VIS) is the leading UK provider of vehicle lookup data, and is perhaps best known for popular consumer services, MyCarCheck and MyTextCheck.

We carry out over two million car, van, commercial vehicle and motorbike checks per day for our partners, who include Budget Group (Compare the Market), GoCompare, Halfords, Hastings, Moneysupermarket, Swiftcover, Swintons, Tesco Bank and What Car?

Our trusted vehicle data is the backbone for many bespoke corporate solutions. For example, our data is widely used in the insurance industry to verify vehicle information and to ascertain the vehicle's correct insurance group.

From a vehicle registration number, we can provide up to 200 fields of data per vehicle; everything from make, model and fuel-type to the recorded mileage, estimated value, accident and theft history, or if there is outstanding finance.

We pride ourselves on our accurate, up-to-the-minute data obtained from numerous different sources, including: the Police National Computer (PNC), the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), the Association of British Insurers (ABI) and major finance houses including Lloyds TSB.

vehicle valuations with VIP DATA

We provide over one million used vehicle valuations per month. Unlike others in the market, CDL has its own valuation system, VIP DATA. This provides internal efficiencies and, importantly, independence.

We have recruited some of the UK's foremost experts in car, van, commercial vehicle and motorbike valuations, making our valuation service second to none.


vehicle provenance checks

CDL has grown quickly in the consumer vehicle provenance check market, providing accurate data at competitive prices, saving money for millions of motorists when they buy a used car.  CDL now offers vehicle data checks on a wide variety of platforms: online at MyCarCheck.com, via iPhone and Android apps and via SMS with the MyTextCheck service.

Our pre-pay functionality allows clients to access vehicle information without technical knowledge; accounts can be set up within minutes. A pre-pay system ensures that clients only pay for the service used.
