Retrieve search results

You can retrieve a previous search result from the PPSR by using the unique search number.

The search number will take you to the original search result.

It will not conduct another search and will not give you any updated information. Any security interests that may have been registered after this search will not appear.

You might retrieve a search result to confirm that you issued a search certificate for all security interests returned in the search result or to issue a search certificate if one was not issued at the time of the original search.

If you have received a search certificate from another party, you can check the details by entering the search number and viewing the original search.

There is no cost for this service.

Additional Motor Vehicle Details – NEVDIS data will not be updated
