    odd that you need the existing MOT or V5

    Should be available as a pre purchase check!

    That's exactly what its for! And also, if you're serious about buying a car, you'd ask to see the V5 or MoT and could note down the reference number needed.

    true, but if I wanted to look at a car in a garage, or compare several on eBay then I'd have to get the document numbers.

    Should be able to just use reg

    This doesn't work for me?
    I entered my reg and V5C number but it keeps saying something is wrong.

    Very annoying

    It's not the V5c number at the top right, it's the document reference number halfway down on the right :)
