This article explains the process of searching for and certifying motor vehicle information online through the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) website. To begin, the vehicle must be registered and validated on the website, and the owner must have obtained a new logbook.
The guide is divided into two steps: certifying motor vehicle information and searching for motor vehicle information.
How to Search and Certify Motor Vehicle Details Online
To certify motor vehicle information, one must navigate to the URA website (https://www.ura.go.ug/), click on eServices then More.
Then scroll down to the Motor Vehicle section and click on Search and Certification.
One must then fill in the necessary application information, including TIN, name of the owner, and contact details. Proceed to the next section to fill in Search and Certification details, such as the vehicle registration number, type of application, reason for the search, and the amount to be paid.
The services are for a fee that must be paid, and a preferred payment method must be selected.
Certified Copies of Records- UGX 40,000.
