Where does this data come from?
The data on which this site is based is derived from the vehicle licencing statistics published by the Department for Transport, which is taken from an analysis of the DVLA's database (Driver Vehicle and Licensing Agency).
We’ve used this information and carried out a little editing to make the figures more readable and easier to search. The information doesn’t necessarily include vehicles where the owner has informed the DVLA that they no longer intend to drive it on public roads – and therefore avoid paying road tax.
As the information dates back to 1901, you may notice some information on older car makes can be ‘patchy’. Also, small car manufacturers and other niche vehicle information may not contain the level detail found against other, more popular and recently registered, makes and models.
If you can't find the make and model of your car there will be a number of reasons why this is the case so we give this information for your interest only. More information can be found here:
