Well, if the document provided is from another car (and carefully copied/faked) and the car being sold has fake numbers mimicking the original car, the scheme can work, as it did in this case.

In the UK, the purpose of vehicle registration is to know who the "keeper" is NOT the owner. This is to avoid arguments over who is responsible for incidents involving the car.

So a new "keeper" can fill in a form declaring they now have the car, irrespective of whether they have acquired legal title or not. The fact that this database is used for other purposes is irrelevant to its basic purpose - simples!.
