    I did know that - What I meant was that ANPR would scan the car to see if the details matched without any intervention by a human. If they didn't match then the alrm would be raised.

    I thought that APNR was just to check if the car was insured or not, it doesn't cover Vin and Chasis numbers.

    It covers Whether the car has a valid MOT. So it must have links to at least three databases. DVLA, Motor Insurance (MID) and VOSA

    All the data that is on the V5 is on the DVLA database. I was postulating a possible way forward - not a fact.

    Ok Santa, I was just pointing out vehicle make and colour is shown to the ANPR operator, once the system has interrogated the database, it is a complex problem to solve. Perhaps it would me more fruitful to tackle to remove the incentives to clone.

    First would be to stop using NPR.
    Insurance write-offs should be crushed by the insurers.

    I think it would very difficult and expensive to put a stop on the whole scam. Remember when the Mileage Indicator went Digital, they said that would stop the crooks from turning the mileage back?

    Well, it didn't, they
    learned how to hook it up to a computer and do it that way.

    NO NO NO. They are only Right-offs because the Insurance companies regard them as being "beyond economical repair" completely different from a "Right-off"
