We have access to the UK Police Database for UK Stolen Vehicles. Unfortunately An Garda Siochana do not share their Stolen Vehicle data with any third parties as yet so in the meantime we are reliant on our own private stolen vehicle register to check if a car has been reported stolen in Ireland and we can only check if it was stolen in Ireland using this database.
Over 13,000 cars are stolen in Ireland every year, with 15% (2,000) remaining unrecovered. Notwithstanding this Ireland is one of the few countries in Europe that does not make its stolen vehicle register (as maintained by an Garda Siochana – the national police force) available to members of the public.
Can I check if a car was stolen in Ireland?
Unlike the United Kingdom where the Stolen Vehicle Register has been made available to Motorcheck, the Irish database remains for Garda use only.”
While Motorcheck continues to lobby An Garda Siochana for access to the official register, we are pleased to offer the services of our own stolen car register to you free of charge.
If you’re buying a car please note that it is not possible to check all stolen vehicle records until the Garda database becomes available.
To record your vehicle as stolen on our register please complete the form here. We will ensure that any reports run against the registration number you supply will carry the necessary warning and with luck a potential buyer will contact Motorcheck with information that may lead to its recovery.
