Japanese Owner History – About
The Japanese Owner History is the full Registration Record from the Transport Bureau of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport & Tourism Japan (MLIT).
This is an official watermarked document usually between 1 and 3 pages in length depending on how many registration events a vehicle has had while in Japan.
Most vehicles with multiple owners will have 1 to 2 pages of history, sometimes 3.
Information shown includes the dates for all events – initial registration, title transfers, owner names & addresses, issue of export certificate, intended & actual export dates. *Only the most recent license plate number will be shown and some owner address information will be redacted for privacy.
This provides a complete record of every registration, transfer & owner change, together with first & last registrations & the export date from Japan.
*Note that most vehicles will typically have one (1) or two (2) pages of owner history, but we won’t know how many pages there are until we obtain your documents. One (1) page is included in the above price.
*For each additional page we charge 30 USD to cover application fees and translation – this will be invoiced to you if required, before we commence translation.
Japanese Dealer Service Records
Dealer (& private) service records are not publicly available information & cannot be supplied with any of our services.
These types of records would only be supplied by the Japanese seller / exporter of the vehicle to the importer in another country – either by including them inside the vehicle or posting them separately following export.
