How to Check the Validity of Your Vehicle's Plate Number Online Using Lagos State's MVRS

Imagine this: you’re held up by traffic officers, and you’re being quizzed about the validity of your vehicle’s registration. The documents are alright- at least, that’s what you tell them –and your driving is impeccable. You try to convince them that you’re a good citizen driver, but they’re having none of it. There’s even the suggestion from one of them that your car’s number plate isn’t authentic.

And you’re running late for an extremely important meeting.

The Lagos State Government has introduced a quick and convenient way to deal with this sort of number plate authenticity palaver. The Motor Vehicle Registration Search (MVRS), powered by the state’s ministry of science and technology, allows drivers and law enforcement agents to check for the registration details of their vehicles online. The search portal is connected to a registration directory containing information on vehicles registered in Lagos, and elsewhere in the country.

How It Works

Follow these steps to double-check your vehicle registration details with the MVRS:

  1. Log on to the Motor Vehicle Registration Search website, lsmvaapvs.org.
  2. Enter your vehicle plate number in the search box. Plate numbers should be typed without spaces or other symbols apart from the numbers and alphabets e.g. YM345DB (they’re also not case sensitive- so you may equally type ym345db).
