The auto-sector of Pakistan is booming, a fact that is clearly evident by the surge in vehicle sales in the country. With growing number of vehicles on the road, it has become crucial to explain the process of getting duplicate papers of different vehicles (including cars, bikes and others), since many of us have come across a situation where we lost the vehicle’s registration papers or they got stolen.
The process of obtaining duplicate papers for bikes or cars varies from city to city and you might face a lot of trouble if you’re not aware of the process, or the documents required. But if you’re unaware about the process, then don’t worry because we have you covered.
Car/bike registration in Pakistan is already a painstaking process and if you’ve lost your vehicle registration papers then this process only gets uglier. Therefore, we have created a guide listing duplicate papers charges, required documents for car/bike duplicate papers and locations of motor registration offices.

In order to get duplicate papers, applicants will be required to arrange the following documents before forwarding their application:
- Police Report
