A valid reason could be the need to trace someone who may have damaged a vehicle and driven off, or to trace the owner of a car or van that has been abandoned or perhaps one that has received parking tickets not due to the present keeper. If your request is valid, you can ask for previous ownership details, present keeper details or any information the DVLA hold on the vehicle. This is one of the very few free car checks you cannot do online. All applications must be sent by post and you are required to fill in a V888 form which can be obtained at a post office.
