Download vehicle data from the DVSA MOT API using VRM.

get_MOT(vrm, apikey)

Arguments

vrm

A list of VRMs as character strings.

apikey

Your API key as a character string.

Details

This function takes a a character vector of vehicle registrations (VRMs) and returns vehicle data from MOT records. It returns a data frame of those VRMs which were successfully used with the DVSA MOT API.

Information on the DVSA MOT API is available here: https://dvsa.github.io/mot-history-api-documentation/

The DVSA MOT API requires a registration. The function therefore requires the API key provided by the DVSA. Be aware that the API has usage limits. The function will therefore limit lists with more than 150,000 VRMs.

Examples

# \donttest{ vrm = c("1RAC","P1RAC") apikey = Sys.getenv("MOTKEY") if(nchar(apikey) > 0) { get_MOT(vrm = vrm, apikey = apikey) } # }
