What is a Vehicle Information Report (VIR)?
Sample Vehicle Information Report
A Vehicle Information Report (VIR), sometimes referred to as a Vehicle History Report, is a document that provides detailed information about a specific vehicle, such as its history, current status, and potential issues. This report can be used by prospective buyers to make informed decisions when purchasing a used vehicle, or by current owners to better understand their vehicle's current status.
It is important to note that while a Vehicle Information Report (VIR) can provide valuable insights into a vehicle's history, it may not always include every detail, and should be used in conjunction with a thorough inspection and test drive of the vehicle prior to making a purchase decision.
Also, please keep in mind that a vehicle information report will only contain information maintained by the Government of Alberta. If you believe that the vehicle may have come in from another jurisdictions you may wish to consider additional options to research the vehicle.
