Wheelie Ltd - Motor Vehicle Register - API Access

We are a Wellington Startup focussed on building a software solution that helps New Zealand motorists manage their vehicle data more effectively though the development of a vehicle - digital service log. This log would contain vehicle servicing information, purchased part data and ownership transfer information. We require access to vehicle registration information via an API - either in JSON or XML or SOAP format. If you can return vehicle information via an endpoint & numberplate lookup - it would be ideal.

Validating that a vehicle number plate matches the description of a certain motor vehicle. We can then use this data to help build reliable information about vehicle servicing, repairs and transfers.

Validating that the vehicle is a real vehicle - and that the number plate matches the vehicle description.
