Vehicle Recalls. A safety recall is defined as where the manufacturer recalls the vehicle for safety reasons under the DVSA safety recall scheme. If the manufacturer of your vehicle is a participant in the scheme, this service can indicate if your vehicle may have an outstanding safety recall.
To check the recall status of your vehicle just enter the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). The VIN is a string of 17 characters including letters and numbers. It is recorded on the vehicle’s V5 Certificate (log book) and on the vehicle itself – usually on the driver’s side door pillar, on the windscreen or dashboard or under the bonnet. If you cannot find the VIN or if your VIN is not 17 characters contact the vehicle’s manufacturer or one of their main dealers for advice.
There is a quick way of checking if your car is on a manufacturer recalls list.
