Car registration #API for #Colombia launched


Colombia is one of the largest automotive markets in South America, after Brazil and Argentina.

At the end of 2017 there were 13 million vehicles in Colombia, according to data from the Ministry of Transportation and the automotive association Andemos. Of those, 912,142 were registered for transportation (freight and passenger) and 7.4 million were motorcycles (57%). Not including motorcycles, 83% of Colombian vehicles are for private use, 16% are in public service, and one percent is for official use (7). According to research conducted by Business Monitor International in 2017, Colombia’s car ownership is still far from reaching saturation point. [Source: Export.gov]

We have launched an API that can return vehicle details from a number plate registered in Colombia at http://co.placaapi.com 

Car registration plates in Colombia use the /CheckColombia  endpoint and return the following information:

  • Make & Model
  • Age
  • VIN
  • Insurance details
  • Owner
