As part of Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s commitment to open data we provide a range of vehicle fleet and registration statistics. These are updated regularly.
The Motor Vehicle Register (MVR) records information about vehicles used on New Zealand roads and the persons responsible for their use.
The motor vehicle registrations dashboard shows all vehicles registered in New Zealand for the first time, during the most recent calendar month.

Authorised access to the register
The New Zealand vehicle fleet open data provides a point-in-time ‘snapshot’ of all vehicles currently registered in New Zealand. The data relates to currently registered vehicles as recorded on the MVR and is updated monthly, so data is accurate as at the end of the month previous to when it’s accessed.
