Vehicle Registration

Motor vehicle registration is the registration of a motor vehicle with a government authority, either compulsory or otherwise. The purpose of motor vehicle registration is to establish a link between a vehicle and an owner or user of the vehicle. This link might be used for taxation or crime detection purposes. While almost all motor vehicles are uniquely identified by a vehicle identification number.

Notably, ICT Administration has also started a mobile registration service. The service can be availed through the official mobile app i.e. City Islamabad App. The Smartphone app offers number of mobile services to the users including token tax payment. You can also request for mobile registration through our dedicated helpline.
