Let us now get to the actual vehicle verification process in Islamabad. 

Similar to MTMIS Punjab, the Excise and Taxation Department of the capital has launched the Motor Transport Information Management System. MTMIS Islamabad is an information centre that has made the process of vehicle verification in Islamabad easier, as it stores all the data related to vehicle registration, verification, driving licence and traffic rule violations. 

Getting your car registration check won’t just help you if a traffic police constable wants to know the details of your vehicle; it will also help you if you wish to resell your car and need to reassure the buyer regarding the authenticity of the vehicle. 

Methods of Vehicle Verification in Islamabad

In Islamabad Capital Territory, there are three simple methods to do a vehicle registration check in Islamabad:

  • Official Website

Let us discuss these methods in a bit more detail.
