Saw a 2nd hand car at the weekend:

When I entered the registration number into RAC's DVLA search, it says no records can be found at DVLA.

Sometimes the RAC/DVLA database can be a little.. rubbish, and perfectly legitimate cars simply do not appear in it. Don't worry, it doesn't mean the car is dodgy.

If you are concerned, HPI the car, but I'm sure its fine. Perhaps it has previously had a private plate and the database has yet to update?
