Hi Folks,

I see you can request information from the DVLA on form V888.

Has anyone used this, thinking of tracking back all the previous owners of my Morris Minor 1000 from new ?

I found this service almost useless.

I Have been the owner of my 1957 four door since 1978. I knew who the previous keeper was but he is no longer at the address and I couldn't trace him. Like you I wanted to compile a potted history of the car. I have a lot of documents - most of the service history since 1961 so there are some clues in there, billing names and addresses on invoices and I can chart thecae from Cambridge and its early years after 1961 to Chingford, East London and then back towards Cambridgeshire and Essex, where I bought it.

The DVLA came back to me saying that they had no information past the time that the original 'computerised ' log books were issued and the old buff ones discontinued. All previous keepers were listed on this buff document and although I have it, there are clearly some pages missing - inevitably the ones with the previous keepers on it.

So in summary, because I have had the car so long, the V888 enquiry only listed me and the previous keeper - no further back than 1975!

If your car has had numerous keepers since the buff log books were phased out, then it may be of use.
