  • What do I need to bring with me to buy a vehicle?

    We will need to take a photo copy of your driving licence as proof of your identity. The driving licence will need to be the photograph/card style. We are unable to accept the paper style driving licence as proof of identity. If you do not have a photo driving licence then you may bring a passport as proof of identity.


    If you would like to test drive the vehicle, we will also need to carry out an online licence check prior to allowing you to drive the vehicle. This allows us to check for any driving convictions which we must for, our insurance cover. In order for us to do this we will need you to provide us with your National Insurance number. We do not store your National Insurance Number on file for security reasons, we simply enter your N.I number directly into the GOV.co.uk website while you are present.


    If you are not comfortable providing us your National Insurance Number you can go online and obtain a check code from the government website below. Simply bring the check code with you and we can use this to conduct your driving licence check.

If the vehicle of your choice is in preparation and you wish to view it, you can register your interest with us and we will inform you as soon as it is ready to view.
