#KBA API for Germany based on #Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt data


We just launched KbaAPI.de this morning, which is an API that allows a lookup of the German KBA (“Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt”) data. Unlike other countries in the network, the German API accepts KBA numbers instead of number plates.

The data can be purchased as a CSV import for your own database here https://payhip.com/b/PqsL

A KBA number (“Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt”) is a unique number under which is registered with the Federal Motor Transport Authority. The KBA number can be found on the vehicle registration in boxes 2 and 3 or in the registration certificate Part 1 under 2.1.
and 2.2. This API is accessed via the /CheckGermany endpoint, where KBANumber is in the format HSN/TSN (Herstellerschlüsselnummer / Typschlüsselnummer), it returns the following data:
● Make & Model
● Engine Size in KW and HorsePower (PS)
● Engine Capacity
● Fuel type
● Representative image
Sample KBA Number:
