What to do if a vehicle has a lookout report linked

  • READ the report first and carefully assess the situation before taking any action.
  • It is important to verify and cross-reference the information provided in the report before confronting any suspects.
  • Please keep in mind that if you come across a stolen vehicle or license plate, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TAKE ACTION YOURSELF. Contact your nearest law enforcement agency to report the sighting and provide them with the necessary information. It is their responsibility to confirm if the vehicle is still wanted and take appropriate action.

Lookout report

No lookout report

The NP Tracker report provides a list of lookouts for a specific vehicle. These lookouts are generated based on community inputs and are posted to monitored groups. This report serves as a helpful tool to identify trends related to a specific registration number.

For example, if a vehicle is involved in a break-in in Kempton Park and a lookout is posted on a patroller group in Kempton Park, if the same vehicle is spotted and tested by a member in Centurion three weeks later, they will receive the original lookout to gain a better understanding of the vehicle's history.

If there are no registered records or lookouts for a specific vehicle, the system will respond with a message stating "Numberplate NOT found." Users have the option to register a lookout with as much information as possible to assist other members if the vehicle is tested by someone else.


NPS-VCR report

NPS-VCR is a report used to determine and present vehicle make, model, partial VIN, and engine numbers. This information is obtained through our network of license disk scanners and external sources. Discrepancies can be reported and are corrected through a manual investigation. To review and report discrepancies, please visit /review.

Please note that in the Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal provinces, vehicle number plates are reused. This may result in incorrect vehicle details for these vehicles, as the previously registered vehicle details may still be on record.
