It is sometimes necessary to "punch" the number of a car to find out the facts of violation of traffic rules, whether the car is on bail in the bank, in theft or wanted. Such a need arises before buying a car with its subsequent registration with the traffic police or when passing a technical inspection.
To obtain reliable information about the car, contact the traffic police department. Explain to the traffic police that you are planning to buy this car. Most likely you will not be denied. In the traffic police there is a database of license plates and car owners, using it you can find out information about the presence of offenses recorded for this particular registration plate. If you know the VIN code of the car, this will be an additional plus when checking.
There are Internet resources to check the numbers. However, they most often have a territorial reference, and the information in them is far from always reliable. There is no single database of vehicle registration numbers as such; each region or republic has its own list of vehicles. You can punch a car on the Internet using the VIN code. To do this, go to https://www.vinformer.su and in the corresponding window and get an answer whether the car is hijacked or not. Don't rely on the information to be accurate. It gets into this database on the initiative of the injured car owner. In addition, there are many sites on the network that request the sending of a paid SMS message and there is no guarantee that you will not become a victim of scammers.
On the network, on car forums, you can also find private announcements about the services of providing complete information about cars and their owners by registration number. However, this service raises doubts, because if there is no official interconnected database of cars for all regions of the Russian Federation and the CIS, then where will it come from a private person? Do not use such services, most likely - you are just wasting your money.
It is also very difficult to find out if the car is in the bank on bail. There are many banks, and a single database exists only for chronic defaulters, they are put on the "black" list. Contact several large federal banks with a request for information about a specific car. But if they do not confirm the presence of a deposit, this does not mean that the car is not a credit one. Often, the original TCP remains in the hands of the owner when pledged.
