Want free bike checks, to give you peace of mind before you buy? Find out more on how to get one here..

To give you peace of mind, we provide buyers with a vehicle check with a clear history on Auto Trader Bikes adverts.
There are 2 different types of checks; basic and full. These vehicle checks (in partnership with Experian) allow you to see the history of a bike you’re thinking of buying.
A basic history check will tell you:

  • If the bike has been stolen
  • If the bike has been scrapped
  • If the bike has been written off by insurers
  • If the bike has been imported
  • If the bike has been exported
Here is an example of a basic history check on site:
Some bikes on Auto Trader contain a full history check, this will tell you:
  • 1. If the bike has been stolen
  • 2. If the bike has been scrapped
  • 3. If the bike has been written off for insurance purposes
  • 4. If the bike has been imported
  • 5. If the bike has been exported
  • 6. If there is any third-party interest in the bike
  • 7. If the bike has any mileage discrepancies
  • 8. If the bike has changed colour
  • 9. If there is any outstanding finance on the bike
  • 10. If there have been any plate changes
Here is an example of a full history check on site:
Why can’t I see a vehicle check on the bike I want?
Over half the bikes on Auto Trader Bikes have a free vehicle check on, if you cannot see this on the advert unfortunately this is because we're missing some information so we're unable to complete a check at this time.
If you cannot see a check on the advert, request all the information in a check from the seller.
