Hello Shiva

Be it a car or a bike, you can get all forms of required information only with the help of number plate only. There are cases when we do not have any other detail other than the number plate. It may be a situation like a second hand car purchase, a chase of a car or hit and run case. In such situations, you hardly have more than the car number. But that is enough to get the details about the car easily and elaborately.

You will be able to identify each and every factor related to car and bike information just with the help of the registered number of the car or bike.

How is it possible to get a bike or car information from the registered number?

In India, it is compulsory to get the registration done for every new car on road. According to the Government of India, you cannot run or drive a car or bike on road without or before the registration.

Once a new vehicle is registered, a new number plate is assigned to the car or bike. Vehicle registration for a two-wheeler or four-wheeler is very similar to having Aadhaar Card number assigned to any individual. This is a unique identification number which helps to identify a particular car on road. While doing this registration, every detail of the car and owner need to be enlisted, so that, only with the help of the vehicle number, all car information or bike information can be delivered to the searcher.

The registration process is done under the Regional Transport Office (RTO), an Indian Government bureau responsible for the registration of vehicles. They issue driving licenses and vehicle registration cards and hence they have all car and bike information. You will find RTO office in every state of India and in major districts also.
