How do I check the number of previous keepers?

How can I find how many previous owner of a car I am thinking of buying?

Asked by Ron Cater

The vehicle registration document (V5C) – never buy a car without checking it – includes details of the previous two keepers while any history check should be able to tell you the number of previous keepers.

All of the vehicles listed on AA Cars come with a free 26-point history check which includes number of registered owners, mileage, plate and colour changes.  No vehicles which have less than 6 months MOT remaining, or have been recorded as previously written off are listed on AA Cars.
