NEVDIS (National Exchange of Vehicle and Driver Information System) is the database that contains information on all vehicle's registered in Australia. All data is imported from the eight state and territory road authorities. Australian businesses and government organisations can search NEVDIS for vehicle identification information and vehicle status checks.
You can get access to the NEVDIS database via the Blue Flag API.
Direct from Austroads and the road and traffic authority, our database is always up-to-date.
Once registered by a local road traffic authority, all vehicles are ready for a NEVDIS search.
Only pay for what you use. Discount plans with extra savings are also available if you have consistent usage.
With our API, you can request a NEVDIS search on vehicles registered in each state or territory. This includes registrations for cars, trucks and motorcycles. The information provided is exactly as is from the source system, we do not change it.
