How quickly is Car jam up dated ,
if a car got a WOF on Wednesday 16 th at lunch time ,
how soon is it likely is the info be updated on Car Jam
ie; when should i expect the new info to appear on the report.

Only when someone pays for an updated report.

You can check the current WoF and reg info free at NZTA site.

Carjam isnt real time, it's only third party information. Use the above link to get it direct from NZTA.

"they" say its totally up to date. Realty is they are often days behind.

Interestingly, if you check a car on Carjam that has been written off and re registered, the report will only ever say "written off? no records found".

all i use carjam for is engine numbers and quick overview dont trust any information like your live depended on it.
carjam you can only sortof trust. i have no idea Why all the mb140 vans who are front wheel drive are listed as 4wd. mind you i could bodge one in to being 4wd without cert and say look on carjam its 4wd . there is a idea. lets see the mb 4wd drive lol on the mb100 also.
Thy are not they never made any of them 4wd but i know its possible i seen some russian or east block one in the mud .
my one is zq4395 the mb 100 listed on here also said 4wd. So yea be carfull its not always what it seems.

It's neat how you can upload your own photo of your car to your numberplate.

I looked up a Nissan Skyline once to find the pic was one of it doing a burnout.
And it's handy seeing a graph of the kms, date & WOF 'fail or pass'.
A incentive to make sure it passed first try, rather than chance it & have it come up as a 'Fail' on the CarJam page at the time.

What happens if you check by VIN number?

Car jam is free but if you want a more up to date and comprehensive report get a PPI and pay for it.!

sw20, Dec 18, 11:20am
Do PPIs normally list when the vehicle changes hands, all the WOF checks, plate changes, whether it has money owing?

No but you can buy a report on most of those things some like plate changes are on Carjam.
