Developers API For Vehicle Data

A simple vehicle registration lookup API that provides a vast range of vehicle data from numerous different data points including DVLA and DVSA.

Low Price Per Request

We believe we are fairly priced and offer Initial check data free.


A standard HTTP GET request is all it takes to receive vehicle data.

Fast Response Time

Vehicle data queries return in milliseconds, not seconds.

An API for developers that want to

  • Let users perform vehicle registration marker (vrm) lookups.
  • Add Tax, MOT, Vehicle data and more to websites and mobile app.
  • Provide customers with free & paid vehicle history checks.
  • Offer customers peace of mind when buying a used vehicle.
  • Access 3 fruitful datasets (We call them: Free, Deluxe and Standard).
  • Not pay over the odds for vehicle data but still offer data guarantees.


We currently offer 2 different datasets which are the same as we offer here on the Rapid Car Check website, these checks are: free check & standard check.

Our data api and datasets are ideal for developers that want to integrate vehicle checking into their own websites, mobile apps and applications.
