I am writing this page because people asked me if I can provide registration plate database.
Vehicle registration lookup API and databases are maintained by governments, they CANNOT be made by, or purchased from random individuals and freelancers like me, because every day new cars are registered, scraped or change owners.
A customer of Teoalida’s Car Database, previously a customer of CarListDB.com, forwarded me the following email received by him from glassguide.com.au:
I DO NOT have registration / owners data, and the companies who does have (car dealerships and insurance companies) must follow personal data protection laws and DO NOT share data of their customers to third-parties.
List of updatesBeen contacted by a lot of people asking for VIN database so I am getting interested in providing such type of data, BUT… VIN is unique per car and not per model so what I should do? A table with over 1 billion rows? (that is the number of cars currently driving around in the worlds). Australia Car Database SAMPLE.xls you can see column X with partial VIN. While this may be sufficient for certain applications, it may be not sufficient for a VIN decoding service.
Anyone looking for VIN database, please give me a SAMPLE database with few rows for few cars so I can understand how would you like the data to be formatted, and we will see if I can do the same for ALL cars!

This page shows funny, weird and unusual questions that I encountered during my years of live chat customer service. Indians are the champions in asking off-topic questions.
This was funny! Someone bought a car database from CarQueryAPI and ask me for updates, then realized what crappy database he bought and choose to buy from me another, better quality database.
