The only way to get this information is through the DVLA. You will need to fill in a Request for Information form (V888) and send it to the DVLA. Note that there's a fee to pay for this service as follows:

  • £2.50 for requesting the keeper details of another vehicle (one that you don't own)
  • £5 for requesting the previous keepers of a vehicle that you now own

For further information, please have a look at the link on how to get information from DVLA records.

If you pay £4.00 for a vehicle Data Check does that include the name of the current registered owner of that vehicle. I don't need any further information on contact details or address but would like to know the name of the person that is currently the registered owner.

With the Vehicle Data Check, you get only details about the vehicle. To get the name of the registered keeper, you will need to contact DVLA as described above in my answer.
