Irish Used Car Mileage Check Help

Today we uploaded over 126,000 Mileage readings uploaded via batch. As of Tuesday 22/05/2012 13:20 the National Mileage Register contains 6,584,301 mileage records.


We are extremely busy these days, and its getting harder to keep up with the demand for new data and services. To help out with the management of our vehicle information, we are recruiting a Linux MySQL Systems Administrator, if you know of someone, please get in touch!.

    Hi Darragh,
    Thanks for your question, it’s one we answer regularily. We source our mileage from the trade, manufacturers, Car History Checks and other unique sources e.g. Miaftr. We also link into the UK National Mileage register to check against UK records where appropriate. We try to form a diverse supply of mileage, so when a discrepancy is uncovered we can rely on more than one source for investigation.

    Why can you not use data from the last NCT test? Is there a barrier to sourcing this information.

    It would be a logical reference point for “clocking” activities.

    Hi Paul,
    Thanks for your question, it is one that we get all the time. You are correct that one source of mileage data would be the National Car Test (NCT) readings. Cartell has placed pressure on the Government to obtain these readings and will continue to do so. At the moment these readings are not available in bulk to anyone – we feel this should change.
