The services known as REVS Check that were available across all states in Australia (NSW, QLD, WA, VIC, NT, SA, ACT) were closed down in January 2012 and replaced by the PPSR which combined all the previous state based registers into one that is Australia wide. REVS Checks Reports not longer exist and have been replaced with what is now referred to as PPSR reports.
A REVS Check report was obtained after providing a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) or Chassis Number and then a report was produced that contained information on whether a vehicle had any encumberance (security interest or money owned), or if the vehicle had been previously written off or stolen.
If you are invested in a second hand vehicle (car, truck, trailer, motorbike etc) for work or personal use then a REVS Check NSW report from VINNER will provide you with everything that you need to know prior to purchase.
A VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) is a unqiue serial number that is used in the automotive industry to identify each vehicle. For vehicles made prior to 1989 and some import vehicles these may have been identified by a Chassis Number, which can also been queried against the PPSR from our website.
A rego check or registration check is performed by the RTA in NSW and ensures that the vehicle is registered to operate on the roads in that state. That data is not provided by a REVS Check or PPSR Report.
