The license plate number based vehicle information mobile application of NISZ

In Hungary 400 thousand used cars change owners on average annually. Since 2013 the number of purchases once again has shown an increasing trend. The average value of the vehicle that changes owners in one transaction is above 1 million forints. As can be presumed from the statistical figures, buying a vehicle is a significant investment made for the term of several years for most people. News about rolling back the odometer, false registration data and stolen vehicles does not put buyers’ minds at ease. Therefore much information is needed when selling or buying a car. By the Autoscope application we have collected such formal and informal information in one place that provides instant, reliable help when a decision needs to be made.
