USA number plate lookup API #easteregg

usaThis is a bit of an Easter egg, since it’s not been officially released yet, but we’ve developed a lookup for vehicle number plates that works across all 50 states of the US.

It’s located at http://www.regcheck.org.uk/api/reg.asmx?op=CheckUSA

It requires an account from RegCheck.org.uk – but you can get a free one with 10 credits for testing purposes.

The USA requires two parameters, the registration number, and the state where the vehicle was registered. The state is a two letter abbreviation of one of the 50 states, or DC (District of Columbia), GU (Guam), PR (Puerto Rico) or VI (Virgin Islands).

It returns the following information about the vehicle

  • Description
  • Body Style
  • VIN
  • Engine Size
  • Country of Assembly

Sample Json:

{“Description”:”2003 Harley-Davidson FLHR/I Road King “,”BodyStyle”:{“CurrentTextValue”:””},”VechileIdentificationNumber”:”1HD1FWW1X3Y746238″,”Assembly”:”United States”,”EngineSize”:{“CurrentTextValue”:”1450CC 2 Unleaded Gas”}}
