Greenlight Car History Check


Car History Check Ireland

You asked and we listened – we’re delighted to release Greenlight History Check! This Irish car history check report will provide you with information such as write-off status, mileage records, import status and NCT history – everything you’ll need to make an informed choice when purchasing a used car.


Car History Check


So, why should you carry out a history check before you purchase a used car?

We always recommend carrying out a History Check and Finance Report on any used car you intend to purchase. The report will allow you to make a safe decision and offers peace of mind that the car matches the seller’s description. While the safety of the car is a priority, a history check could also potentially save you thousands of euro. Factors such as mileage discrepancies and NCT records can affect the purchase price of the car and ultimately leave you out of pocket when it comes to resale.


What is included as part of Greenlight History Check?

The report contains important information relevant to anyone buying a used car including:

  • Write-off status
  • Mileage records
  • NCT history
  • Import status
  • Tax records
  • Outstanding finance in Ireland
  • Has the car colour been changed
  • Has the car been used as a taxi or car hire
  • Vehicle details (including engine number)
  • Previous owner information


If there is no outstanding finance on the car, the full report will usually arrive within 5 minutes. In the event that there is potential outstanding finance, we will email you the Vehicle History Report within 5 minutes and the follow-up Irish Finance Report within 1 working day.

We love hearing your feedback so if you feel there’s anything that we could improve on we’d like to hear from you! Email us with your suggestions.

    Payed for a history check and it’s wrong, says the car in question is a Ford Fiesta, when it’s actually a Volvo C30 if you could check this it would be helpful.

      Hi John,

      Thanks for getting in touch. I spoke with our Customer Support Team about this and they have already refunded the cost of your history check. The issue was that the Dealer accidentally entered the wrong registration number for the ad so the history check report you purchased was based on a different vehicle. We’ve asked the dealer to fix this error also.

      All the best,
