This web page is to allow for an interactive evaluation of the IDS webAPI for Vehicle
Data. It will demonstrate the webAPI calls that are available, and the response
from these calls.
If you would like more documentation or a trial, or to talk further over the data
and services that we provide please do not hesitate to contact us here:
For sites that deal with used vehicles, often the most intuitive way to find a vehicle
is by using it's VRM (Vehicle Registration Mark), the IDS webAPI provides a convenient
call to interrogate it's data by VRM - This works equally well with regular plates
or cherished plates. However, on occassions it may not be possible to match a vehicle
from a given VRM, and therefore a more tradition drill-down process is required,
by selecting Manufacturer, Model and vehicle variant.
Vehicle Registration Mark:
As mentioned above on occassions where a VRM lookup is not possible, or for users
who are dealing with new vehicles the IDS webAPI provides calls to allow for drill-down
by Manufacturer, Model and Vehicle Variant in order to identify the unique vehicle
record from over 130,000 vehicles.
The IDS webAPI supports a number of different variations on drilling down to vehicles, and below 3
different versions are presented - although it's perfectly possible to use the webAPI calls and
code for these is available upon request.
