shell php


Welcome to the Global Automotives Cloud API! You can use our API to access Vehicle API endpoints, which can get information on vehicle based on registration/plate number in our database.

We have language bindings in Shell and PHP! You can view code examples in the dark area to the right, and you can switch the programming language of the examples with the tabs in the top right.

If you have any question or feedback, you are feel free to contact Automotives Cloud or send e-mail to


To authorize, use this code:

# With shell, you can just pass the correct header with each request
curl "api_endpoint_here" \
  -H "Authorization: Bearer API_TOKEN"
  -H "Accept: application/json"

Make sure to replace API_TOKEN with your API token.

Global Automotives Cloud uses API tokens to allow access to the API. You will get API TOKEN on Global Automotives Cloud.

Global Automotives Cloud expects for the API Token and Accept type to be included in all API requests to the server in a header that looks like the following:

Authorization: Bearer API_TOKEN Accept: application/json


Get vehicle by registration/plate number

// You will get api token here
$api_token = '<API TOKEN>';

$data = [
    'registration_no' => 'Eg258ma',
    'country_code' => 'fr'

$url  = "" . http_build_query($data);

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, [
    'Authorization: Bearer '. $api_token,
    'Accept: application/json'
//Get the response from cURL
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
$result = json_decode(curl_exec($ch), true);
$httpcode = curl_getinfo($ch, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE);

if($httpcode != 200){
    // on Error
    echo $result['message'];
    // On Success
    echo '<pre>'; print_r($result); echo '</pre>';
curl "" \
  -H "Authorization: Bearer API_TOKEN"
  -H "Accept: application/json"
  -d "country_code={country_code}"
  -d "registration_no={registration_no}"

You must replace {country_code} with two character country code and {registration_no} with your real registration/plate number. The above command returns JSON structured (Country wise vehicle data can be different) like this:

    "data": {
        // Available data should be here...

This endpoint retrieves registration details of vehicle.
