Every vehicle whether commercial or private has to be registered, and should have been issued registration number, registration book and number plate. The registration of vehicles and collection of taxes are being affected through computerized system and authorized online National Bank branches linked with main server at Civic Centre Karachi.

Owner of a motorbike or car can get the documents verified in the district for sale or purchase purpose. Now life-time tax was being charged the motorcycle being registered. This amount of tax would be Rupees one thousand and Rs 300 would be charged for issuing number plate at the registration time of a motorcycle. The color of number plate of a motorcycle is grey and script is in blue color. It is legal binding on the owner that a vehicle must be registered within 60 days after the transaction to escape a heavy fine.”
