But if your car is Toyota Camry and your verification shows the above message, the solution is to go and re-register your car afresh.
2. If the message reads “This number plate has been produced by FRSC and assigned to Matrix, however the vehicle is yet to be registered”. If your car is Matrix, then just go back to the person that registered your car and tell him/her to complete your registration.
- If the message reads “This number plate has been produced by FRSC but yet to be assigned to any vehicle”. It means that they just gave you a number plate that is not even registered in their system. The solution is to go to FRSC to register your car and upload your information.
- If the message reads “An invalid/ wrong number plate”. It means your vehicle number plate does not have any form of registration with the FRSC
Note: The verification only applies to new number plates with formats ABC123AB not AB123 ABC
