Free Car Check is currently trying to get access to the main police stolen vehicles database. In the meantime there are several ways you can check if a vehicle has been reported stolen free of charge:
Many forces will now allow you to enquire about a vehicle at a police station. They may take down your details before telling you if a vehicle is stolen, but the service is free and you shouldn't be added to any marketing lists.
One of the commericial car check companies offers http://www.checkitfree.com/. You should be warned however that your details might be given to third parties for marketing purposes. (Correct as of 10/03/2009 - this service is in no way connected to Free Car Check)
