NEVDIS (National Exchange of Vehicle and Driver Information System) is the database of driver and vehicle information of states and territories in Australia. It also maintains the national Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) database and the national Written Off Vehicle Register (WOVR) database.
Responsibility for NEVDIS comes within the Austroads Registration and Licensing Program. It is managed by the NEVDIS Administration Unit (NAU) which is located at and supported by RMS NSW.
The NAU responds to the day-to-day operational demands of jurisdictions’ registration and licensing agencies, vehicle manufacturers/importers and police in relation to driver and vehicle management issues. There is also a relationship with the Commonwealth Attorney General’s Department in relation to Document Verification Service (DVS) for the security of personal identity and Personal Property Security Register (PPSR) enabling the general public to access information about their vehicles.
The NAU assists road authorities and vehicle manufacturers in the exchange of vehicle and driver information. State and territory authorities are the source of NEVDIS data and the primary point of contact for enquiries, errors and corrections. (see customer service contacts list)
