Elon surprised the whole world recently by unveiling the Tesla Roadster .I am still shocked …


  1. I checked for 2 cars today and the website said “Registration Number is Invalid”.
    What could ve wrong?

  2. Good job but my old car registration could not be found if the error mentioned above is for new car

  3. Yaaay! Just checked mine and my details popped up. Thanks for the info!

  4. Got mine too. This is terrific!

  5. Good one. With this development the law enforcement agencies only need to sieve out expired vehicle particulars n stop ONLY offenders n not cause traffic hold-up while checking on the highway. Or it’s not that simple??? Kudos all d same.

    • AutoJosh

      intelligent reasoning and good observation.

    • This is a good development, but for the government to generates more revenue, every law enforcement that drives on Nigerian road should be check to know if their vehicles particulars is up to date, reason is am talking from experience. Thanks.

  6. It is a welcome development in a mega city of Lagos but,my car registration could not be found .Anyway I know it a new policy soonest will be rectified ,ride on ITESIWAJU la fe nilu EKO.

  7. What is the format of input…..eg.

    LAGOS AAA – 419 XX


    AAA 419XX



    Tried all formats and all I got was registration invalid….

  8. This is a good innovation. I just checked and I observed that my chassis number is wrong. The whole chassis number appeared with letter ‘I’ added to it. How can that be rectified please.

  9. Sanni Taiwo tawakalt

    This is marvelous good governance with transparency.The idea will fish out the bad head that are involved in feck.i see mine

  10. I had similar feedback of invalid registration ! What do I do to correct it

  11. I had similar feedback of invalid registration with my plate number. What do I do?

  12. Nice one but I just discovered that my issueance & expairing dates are wrong. What do l do in this case. Thanks.

  13. I tried it twice. The first one gave me invalid, while the second worked. You have to put your vehicle details without any space in between

  14. I changed my registration plate no from the old to the new one in august. I cchecked now and it’s a different name and car make displayed.
    The registration was done in a Lagos state licensing office.
    What could be wrong please.

  15. Prince Adefisayo (Wenny)

    I’m so impressed. This is really a good innovation by the Lagos State Government led by Gov. Akinwunmi Abode. This has been in existence for a while now (confidentially) but the decision to make it a public website is so extraordinary. “ITESIWAJU EKO…..

  17. Is it only for lagos number plate >

  18. I checked again and it brought up my car details.
    Please the issue and expiry dates are for what? The license plates, driver’s license or which of the car documents?

  19. Good job. Pls let have the app on phone

  20. Adamu Bukar Wudiri

    Good job. Any additional benefit; say if your registered vehicle has been stolen at gun point in another state, can it be traced using the chasis number or any other means?

  21. Well done guys for the initiative. Do we have any for Driving License, Custom papers etc.
    I believe the Telcos can also help here through a USSD or SMS short code with some keyword. This will work on “chino” phones that cannot access the internet.

  22. It really works! Though one shouldn’t put space in-btw numbers & letters

  23. Great job guys impressive. Checked 2 cars and all the information popped up correctly.

  24. This appears unbelievable but it’s true EKO ONI BAJE O

  25. But wait oooo, this is a security issue to car owners, why should such information be made known publicly…. Cars information are at great risk. Don’t be surprise when you noticed your car having same details with stolen vehicle.

  26. I checked my Golf car plate number correctly wit no space , it shows invalid. The plate number was issued last year from Delta state what should I do. Thanks

  27. Adeleke Rasheed O.

    Thanks for the information. I have checked my, it really work. Please, we need more information on how to know if our driving licence is genuine or fake.

  28. This is a good innovation. Having a central system where citizens can check status of their vehicles after registration. Nice one. However, I think some form of privacy control should be included so that people with ulterior motives don’t just check status of people’s car while in traffic so as to verify the owner or other things.

    Not just anybody should know the owner name, chassis no. And vital information of cars in traffic, I think it could pose a security threat. Some form of personal code or pin, known only to the owner, at the point of registration should be combined to search for my vehicle status. #MyThoughts

  29. I tried it, to my surprise the information that displayed was completely different from is. I’ve had my car since 2007 but the information stated that the license was issued in 2011. Make of car, color, chasis number were all wrong.
    But could it be that duplicate car numbers exist?

  30. My agent called me that my plate number is ready… I checked out the number sent to me and it shows a different thing entirely. I have tried two different plate numbers again….
    And it’s giving me thesame brand of car, color and other information. Guess the website is not real or something is wrong

  31. I checked found my number plate colour others correct but vechile model wrong instead of Honda CR-V it’s Honda Civic what do I do to correct it.

  32. If you committed a traffic offense and the FRSC officers can come to your home to collect the fine owed. Firstly for safety measures, how do we identify them because criminals can disguise in fake uniforms and fake ID and come into your house and rob you if not worse. So is the government proposing a central checking Web site for Citizens to do their checks beforehand prior to letting people into their homes or even parting with their money.

  33. Pls i want to confirm, what of if someone vehicle was Stole. Can someone trace it with the registered plate number on it. Or with chasiss or engine number.

    • AutoJosh

      Except the police and other agencies can help fish out the car. Apart from that, you’ll need a car tracker to trace the car.

  34. From Segun Babayemi:

    This comes easily possible now especially if you are driving your own car and someone with a data plan on his mobile device quickly checks your plate number to get your car details. It would come with your name, car details and your person data is sold out; just as you have on your vehicle license.

    Subterfugists or tricksters now use this to access people unaware. As a Special Marshall in the FRCN, I have been priviledged to know ahead of time, and Lagos State government recently opened a website for this aswell.

    This unknown to one who tried a trick session on me along Ikorodu road, he waived me down and shouted my name “Mr. Segun Babs”. He was clever to make it more friendly with the way he called me so I may think he was familiar with me, I knew I didn’t register any of my vehicles with that name, but he was confused as I did not get exited. I just raised up my galaxy tab with a sign that I could also browse to know his name from his vehicle. I allowed him to raise ahead as he was insisting I should pull to the service lane to pack so we may talk. I declined by allowing him to race ahead of me.

    I had just taught my family members how to get that right and good enough my son who presently works with me was in the car, he did it immediately And I raced forward to give my “new friend” his report card. I called out, …”Prince Ogunşesomething”. Then he yelled “won ti jaę si” saying it as Lagosians would say ‘so you’ve been posted’.

    Please, friends, be posted, don’t be chickened by any who just called you by your names. Road safety operatives, police and other security corps also have their software to get auto mobile owners details. Don’t be surprised. If you jump a traffic regulation on the highway, they don’t have to run after you as in the time past, you may be visited thereafter at home to pay your bill.

    Let us beware, be careful and be certain of ourselves, may God keep us save from all evil workers, Amen. Happy new year again.


  35. i checked my numba plate and evrytin was shown except my name

  36. I check my number everything was ok.lagos state is working.

  37. My last vehicle license renewal was supposed to start from march 21st, 2016 to march 21st, 2017 (this year) but when I checked the MVAA portal it shows that i have just renewed it for this year of which I have not…. It shows issued: January 3rd, 2017 and expires January 3rd, 2018… The hard copy documents with me still shows expiry date of March 21st, 2017… What can I do?

  38. I checked in december n my details were duly captured with my full namrd. Checked again this morning and it said registration number invalid. However later tonyte, i have checked again. It good d way d details appear now. My name is not captured. It safer dis way

  39. Salami Wasiu Atanda

    Someone sent me the link and I tried it, I saw all my car details within few seconds. This is a great job and fantastic improvement in vehicle administration in Lagos State. There won’t be any need for the law enforcement officer to run after any offender that sometimes leads to unnecessary accidents or argument. With this, car owners cannot drive a car with expired particulars, car snatchers would have to think twice, rough drivers will be cautioned, Government will make more income and our roads will be better for driving. Kudo to Lagos State Government and the team that make this work. Lagos remains the Pacesetter for good things.

  40. The frsc website is more accurate and regularly updated. Lagos site says invalid but frsc site worked perfectly for my 6mths old car.

  41. My plate number which was registered in Kogi State is declared invalid, but confirmed registered on the FRCS website. What does this mean? Victor

  42. I checked my plate number but my name didn’t display asides the other info

  43. I just check for my cars now, it displayed my cars information. Wow!
    This is great . itesiwaju eko

  44. Abdulrasheed S. T

    Lagos state is working but the registration is not completed in as much as the name, picture and address of the owner doesn’t appear

  45. Good one. But I noticed that the first registration details is the only information that shows. Is it because the renewal was not done in Lagos after the expiration.?.

  46. It looks good but security wise, no. Now bad guys can tress your contacts from just your car registration no. call you on phone etc. pls I think this site should be accessible to only security Officers

  47. I tried three vehicles with Abuja number pilates and All responded invalid. It is a major step forward for Lagos State. Congratulations. Eko for show. This not only for show, It can enhance Security. Other States and Federal should Copy this break through.

  48. Good job Ambode & his intelligent crew. I checked mine & d details appeared exept my name. BRAVO!!!!! More innovations welcomed to improve renewal of driver’s licence (though it’s a federal issue but you can help them) LONG LIVE LAGOS STATE LONG LIVE NIGERIA.

  49. pls when i search for a car it brought out all the vehicle details but without the owners name, is that okay like that?

  50. I want to know if the validity of the car registration cover the entire state in Nigeria. I bought my car in Lagos
    and registered it in Abuja. I checked mine. it displayed invalid.

  51. Thanks your this platform with respect to vehicle registration particulars. My vehicle particulars was checked on this platform and was found ok with narration ”duely registered with MVAA but on checking the FRSC platform, I encountered with another error message ” plate number is valid but not attached to any vehicle”. I was embarrassed by police and FRSC most especially in Ibadan.

    Kindly uploaded the registered plate number on time or tell FRSC to confirm the authenticity of plate number using Lagos State Platform and stop embarrassing public.
