WISH YOU’D CHECKED YOUR USED CAR WAS LEGIT There’s now a fast and simple way. The National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council (NMVTRC) is committed to continuing to promote better access to vehicle status information for consumers. With the introduction of the Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) on 30 January, used car buyers now have easy and affordable access to information regarding a vehicle’s history. The PPSR is Australia’s one-stop-shop for vehicle status information. For as little as $3.70 a PPSR check will confirm: • that basic vehicle description information (e.g . make, model, colour, jurisdiction of registration, expiry date, etc.) is consistent with the national register; • whether any party, such as a bank or other lender, has a recorded financial interest in the vehicle; • whether the vehicle is recorded as stolen; and • whether the vehicle has ever been declared a total loss (i.e . write-off) as a result of damage induced by a collision, fire, water inundation, other weather event, malicious action, dismantling or stripping. If you are one of the 1.4 million people who purchase a vehicle from a private seller each year, don’t buy it until you have checked it out on the PPSR. For more information on the PPSR visit, www.ppsr.gov.au The NMVTRC is an initiative of all Australian governments and the insurance industry. We strive to deliver the lowest rate of vehicle theft in the developed world.
