Default VEHICLE ENQUIRY free from DVLA

You can use the Vehicle Enquiry service to check what information DVLA holds on its database about a vehicle.

I just did a search on my own car, as was a little concerned what people could find out from just my reg number and car make - which lets face it is easy to find out!
The only info it came up with was relating to the car itself, colour, engine size, when first registered etc. Nothing of any use to anyone else? As far as I know?

IT has a SORN on it which has not yet expired so yes it is off the road and the current owners have informed the DVLA.
