Are you thinking of signing up to Noddle? If you are, you’re probably wondering how easy it is and what you need to do to access your free report and score. Luckily, we’re here to help!
Below is a brief summary of what you need to do to register with us, so you can sign up as smoothly as possible.
Did you know that credit reference agencies need a certain amount of information on you to populate a credit report
If you’ve got a limited or non-existent credit history, you might not be able to get a credit report and score. However, the good news is that Noddle has Credit Coach – a free service you can use to help you build a sufficient enough credit history over time, so we can generate your report and score.
What you need to sign up
Before you get started, make sure you have the following to hand:
- 3 years of address history
- Knowledge of your financial accounts, e.g. any credit cards or loans you currently have
This information helps us perform security checks to identify that you are who you say you are. By doing this, we’re better able to keep your data safe and stop it falling into the wrong hands.
What happens if you don’t have the necessary information to sign up?
If you don’t have the above to hand to sign up, you may not be able to pass our verification and validation processes. This means we won’t be able to generate a credit report and score for you.

Signing up to Noddle can be done in 4 simple steps.
Step 1: Basic details – You’ll be asked for standard information, such as your name and email address.
Step 2: Address history – Simply pop in your address details to cover the last 3 years.
Step 3: Verification – You’ll be asked a series of personal knowledge-based questions, such as ‘when did you take out your loan from x bank’.
Step 4: You’re done – If we’re able to verify all of the above information against our records, all you have to do now is set up your account. We’ll ask you for basic things like a username and a secure password, and we’ll give you a few tips on how to do this. You then just need to click on the save and finish button and then, just like that, you’re a Noddler!
