Number Plate Verification

Check ! That your Number Plate might be fake.


Start from this car owner’s experience.

“It was on the 14th day of March that I drove into one of the police stations to obtain the new tinted glass permit, in the process, it was discovered that the number plate of my car is being used by another car. My first question is ‘How is it possible?’ I had obtained this number from FRSC with all documents intact. I never know the car is going to stay for 12 days in the station. A file was quickly opened and the car became an exhibit. Thank God the car was registered by a very high ranking officer of the FRSC who was brought to the station. As the investigation was going on, it was discovered that some people were producing these fake and duplicate number plates and giving out to innocent and unsuspicious Nigerian ripping them off their hard earned money.

My question is, should we now go and buy these numbers at a shop in Alaba or at idumota instead of the federal government approved agencies? In the course of my research, I stumbled upon the number plate verification system online. I started verifying cars of friends, church members and even cars that I see on the road. A shocking revelation was made that OUT OF EVERY 10 CARS you see on the road with LAGOS and ABUJA number plates, that at least 4 of them are FAKE.”

You can check your own now.

  1. Go to http://www.nvisng.org/numberplateverification.aspx
  2. Enter your number in the space provided. Eg “ABC863AP
  3. Click on verify button. Then information will be displayed below the button. Because FRSC does not want the general public to see the full details of the registration, you will only see the name of your car and the date of registration.

Note: this verification is only applicable to the number plates with this formats ABC123AB not AB123 ABC.
Here are some samples:

    1.  This number plate has been produced by FRSC and assigned to Toyota highlander on 20/01/2015. If your car is Toyota highlander, then you are lucky it’s done. But if your car is for instance Toyota Camry and your verification shows the above message, then you are in as me. Solution is to go and re-register your car afresh.
    2. This number plate has been produced by FRSC and assigned to Matrix however the vehicle is yet to be registered….. If your car is Matrix, then just go back to the person that registered your car and tell him/her to complete your registration.
    3. This number plate has been produced by FRSC but yet to be assign to any vehicle. It means that they just gave you a number plate that is not even registered in their system. Solution is to go to them to register your car and upload your information.
    4. An invalid/wrong number plate. Does this one need explanation? NO.

If you want to apply for tinted glass permit, verify your number plate first and sort yourself out with the FRSC before you even proceed to the police for the tinted permit because if police are the ones to find out, then you know what follows.

Let us spread this news until everyone is aware of the evil some greedy people are perpetrating.

    what can i do to make the number plate of my former vehicle to the new vehicle without applying for a new number plate?

    • Centre Head says:

      If I get you well, you wish to transfer the plate number of your former vehicle to your new vehicle;
      Number plates are vehicle specific. You can’t use the plate number of your former vehicle for your new vehicle.
      You will need to apply for a new number plate.
      You should contact the Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC) for best advice and guidance.
