The written-off vehicle register (WOVR) is designed to assist in combating the problem of re-birthed vehicles. Re-birthing is the term used when identities of damaged vehicles are bought at auctions, or elsewhere, and put onto stolen vehicles to give them new identification numbers.
The register allows insurers, auctioneers and dismantlers to access Roads and Maritime Services (replacing Roads and Traffic Authority) database, in real-time, to enquire about and add written-off vehicles. It is a legislative requirement that insurers, auctioneers and dismantlers use it.
To access WOVR online click here (open application).
(You will need to be a registered user to access the website. To apply for registration, download the internet access request form from the box below and fax it to Roads and Maritime Services (replacing Roads and Traffic Authority).)
