In addition to accident history, checking a vehicle's history can reveal whether certain parts are original or replacements.

When buying a second-hand car or borrowing one from family or friends, checking the vehicle's history is essential to understand its current condition and past incidents. This can help avoid fines linked to the car's number plate or previous owner and reveal whether parts are original or replacements.

To check a vehicle's history, you need the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or Chassis Number found on the registration card.

Here are the ways to access accident history in the UAE:

  1. Ministry of Interior: Use the 'accident's enquiry' feature on their website by entering the VIN number to see existing accident reports, including the dates and types of accidents.
  2. Emirates Vehicle Gate: Create an account on the website and enter the VIN number under 'traffic accident's management' to view accident history, including the type, time, location, and current condition of the vehicle.
  3. Abu Dhabi Police: For vehicles registered in Abu Dhabi or transactions in the emirate, use the police website's 'inquire about car accidents' feature by entering the Chassis number to access the car's accident history across the UAE.
