    And now for something very different................police advice needed

    Can any kind soul please tell me if it is possible to trace a vehicles I.D from (in this case) a frame and engine number?
    Been googling all day but so much stuff seems to be USA related and I'm very unsure if the same would be the case here.
    If anyone can help with any advice I would be very grateful whether by PM or here.
    Thanks

    Anyone can request such data from the DVLA. Depends how compelling a case you can draft. Might be the sort of thing you need a solicitor involved acting on your behalf.

    Request for DVLA data - Publications - GOV.UK

    It would depend what you needed the info for.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Depends on what you are looking for.

    The manufacturer or owners club will be able to tell you year and model from the frame and engine numbers, but not a registration number or history, You can obtain this once you have the letter from the manufacturer confirming year and model. i.e re-register it at the DVLA on an age related plate.
    I`ve done this a few times.

    The cops can use dvla to obtain reg number then pnc it.

    Thanks for the info chaps.
    In the US according to what I've read you can go to the local cop shop and they will sort it for you but I am doubtful that this is the case in the UK.
    The bike in question has no reg number and that's the real problem.

    Can you expand a little more? Are you looking to buy a bike or have you found one?

    The police can if given an engine number or chassis number then identify the make, model, colour & registration number, date of first registration. This would be subject to the data protection act so without good reason they wouldn't supply you with the information. It may help if you said what you had, what you wanted to know & why?
    PM me if you want
