Authorised access to the register

Anyone can apply for an authorisation from the NZ Transport Agency to access current names and addresses in the Motor Vehicle Register.

Applications for access are made under section 241 of the Land Transport Act 1998(external link). The Transport Agency consults with the Ombudsman, Privacy Commissioner and Police Commissioner (our advising agencies) before deciding whether to grant an authorisation. An authorisation should be for a specific purpose and is subject to any conditions specified by the Transport Agency.
