My dad bought the car for me as I am disabled but as I don't drive, my then husbands name was down as the "registered keeper", now we are divorced can my  dad get the car back? I did not have the car included in the divorce as my dad bought the car so he is the legal owner but how does he get the car back?

Does your dad have any proof of purchase for the car?

Yes he paid for it with his bank card and has his bank statement but the actual bill of sale is in the car pack that my ex still has in his possession.

Ask your dad to give him a friendly call first asking him to return the car. If he doesn't, then you can take legal actions against him and use your dad's bank statement showing the car purchase transaction as proof.
