Rash drivers fleeing from the scene after brushing against a nearby vehicle is an all too familiar sight. Indian roads can be a menace to those not accustomed to its ways. In case you find yourself in a similar situation and you’re able to see the vehicle’s registration number, you’ll want to check  the vehicle owner’s name by registration number. To be able to file a complaint, the vehicle owner’s name is of paramount importance.  On the other hand, in case you’re purchasing a used vehicle, you’ll want to check the vehicle’s registration number  in order to make sure that the car has no history of complaints and that all the details are in order. 

Until recently, there was  no quick way to get any useful details and check the vehicle owner’s name by registration number  soon enough. 

This changed with the launch of VAHAN, a national registry launched by the Central government through the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. This initiative was launched in 2011 with the goal of creating a database of all information related to driving licences and motor vehicle registration details from the Regional Transport Offices (RTOs)and District Transport Offices (DTOs) across the country. By 2019, nearly all of these offices had put the recorded VAHAN registration details  up on the site with the VAHAN registration details of over 25 crore motor vehicles added to the registry since 2011. 

Checking Vehicle Owner Details By Registration Number

Performing a VAHAN registration check online is now fairly easy and only requires that you know the registration number of the vehicle concerned. It is a relatively straightforward process that can be broken down to a step by step formula as follows.

  • Enter the verification code displayed along with the previous step in order to prove that you are not a bot.
