Best way to trace a registration number

I know it's been done before but where is the best site to trace a registration number? Don't expect to get registered owner but hope to confirm vehicle details from blurred pic of regplate.

You could just get any motor factor or even most car shops can VRM a number plate. This will give basic vehicle details such as engine size date of registration and if it's been imported etc.

Thanks guys. The car caught on film and being reported to police was an Audi A3 on an X plate (presumably a personal).

How does this work with the data protection act?

Also if the info on cars is in the public domain, why is there a charge for it?

No data protection problems where I got the info. RegNo told me what the car was but not who owned it. We needed car details before a report was made to the police, together with a video in support (NOT evidence).

A merc is for Christmas, a moped is for ever !!



Probably the Merc failed an MOT or was written off at some point while the moped is languishing at the back of shed somewhere - totally forgotten and unloved but of no value.
