We can help you verify a vehicle's owner

If you want to confirm that the person or company selling a vehicle is the true owner, you can do that right here for free – just enter a name or driver licence number.

Please note that we can’t give you the person’s or company’s details, only confirm ownership.

If you buy a Checka report and some owner details that you need are missing, we can verbally confirm the details but cannot give the information to you (private details are available to NZTA authorised businesses and individuals only). Contact us with the plate or VIN number and the owner’s name and we’ll get back to you. Find more information on the help page
