Vehicle ownership check

Plate or VIN of the vehicle

Please note: the vehicle must be in New Zealand; the registration of the vehicle must be active and complete.

If you haven’t checked the vehicle history & debt yet, you can do it by entering the plate or VIN in the top menu.

Registered person

Important: “Registered person” is the person or legal entity that is entitled to possession of the vehicle. It’s a good indicator of ownership, but in some cases the actual legal owner may be a different person or company (for example, when the vehicle is leased).

You can verify the registered person by entering their details below.

Please use the company name check only if the vehicle is registered in the name of a company/legal entity, and if you know exactly how it’s recorded with the NZTA. Variations won’t return a matching result.

Don’t know the owner’s details?

The name spelling must normally exactly match the spelling on the person’s driving licence.
