HPI Categories

NWO/Not Recorded. Vehicle is not recorded as being damaged or has no/very little damage.

Cat A. A vehicle which should be totally crushed, including all its spare parts.


Cat B. A vehicle from which spare parts may be salvaged, but the bodyshell should be crushed and the car should never return to the road.


Cat C. An extensively damaged vehicle which the insurer has decided not to repair, but which can potentially be repaired to a high standard.
Following the repair, the vehicle has to have a VIC check, before the registration documents can be issued.


Cat D. A damaged vehicle that the insurer has decided not to repair, but which can be repaired and returned to the road.


Cat F. A vehicle damaged by fire, which the insurer has decided not to repair.

Categories A and B are write-offs that are unfit for repair and should never be driven again. These include cars that have been very seriously damaged in an accident, and cars that have been immersed in salt water.

Cars in the C, D, F & NWO categories could potentially be repaired to a sufficiently high standard.
