Snowmobile Registration Transactions (SQ/SR)

This section describes how to access out-of-state snowmobile registration information by sending a query through Nlets to a state by snowmobile registration number, snowmobile vehicle identification number, or name and date of birth.

Note: Inquiries on name may result in multiple hits. A state may choose to return a hit list of
names and abbreviated information. A selection and second inquiry would then have to be
made. Procedures for making this second inquiry should be stated in the multiple hit response
(i.e. "SELECT AND SEND IN REGISTRATION NUMBER").

This section provides an overview and details regarding the Snowmobile Registration Query by Snowmobile Registration Number, Snowmobile VIN or Name and Date of Birth to a state (SQ), and the corresponding Snowmobile Registration Response (SR).

Overview

To send a Snowmobile Registration Query (SQ), a user must enter the Snowmobile Registration Number, Snowmobile VIN, or Name and Date of Birth. Positive Snowmobile Registration Responses (SR) may contain the registration number, expiration date, VIN, owner's name, date of birth, snowmobile color, year built, and power.

Users should recognize that, although Nlets supports these three types of inquiries, states might not always be able to do so (particularly on name and DOB).

Other possible responses to a query are:

  • NOT ON FILE
  • TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE
  • USER DOES NOT RESPOND TO MESSAGE TYPE ' Nlets WILL NOT FORWARD TO XX (where XX = two character user code)
Section23-SQ.jpg

Query Requirements

  • Each Registration Query (SQ) can be sent to up to five state codes.
  • All inquiries are in a fixed format.
  • Codes used as input and/or output are generally in the NCIC format, although certain changes have been made to improve the readability of the responses.

Query Notes

  • If a state wishes to request registration information it should, without exception, utilize the Nlets query formats. Usage should not be contingent on whether a destination state has an automated database on-line.
  • Information within each inquiry provides the destination point with all information necessary to reply.
  • Administrative Messages should not be used in place of Nlets vehicle registration query formats unless there is additional information required that was not included in the reply.

Query Help

To obtain explanatory or supplementary information on a state's snowmobile registration files, a user may send an Administrative Message (AM) to
                 xxSNOW000 (where xx = 2 character state code)

A user also may determine who is providing automated responses to SQ inquiries and who has HELP files by sending an AM to
                 "xxBASHELP" (where xx= 2-character state code).

More information on help files can be located in Help File Transactions.

Data Codes
  • Codes used as input and/or output in the snowmobile registration query/response generally match NCIC formats and content. Please refer to Part II of your NCIC Manual for code translation and instruction.
  • If a state cannot conform to the NCIC codes with regard to snowmobile make and snowmobile model, an easily understandable notation may be substituted.
Snowmobile Registration Query (SQ)

The table that follows describes requirements for Snowmobile Registration Queries (SQ).

Snowmobile Registration Response (SR)

A guideline for snowmobile registration responses is provided herein but adherence is not a prerequisite for participation in this program.

  • If the inquiry was processed and there was no information on file, a "no record" message is returned.
  • For negative responses, a standard Nlets message (i.e., NOT ON FILE, FILE NOT AVAILABLE) should be used, followed by the data element used in the inquiry.
  • Participating states that come up with multiple hits based on a single response are encouraged to utilize abridged or "index" response lists. The inquirer could then examine the list and make a second inquiry on exact registration number.
  • If there are too many index records for a single response, the state may send any part of the list. The inquirer would then have the option of requesting the remainder of the information or terminating the message.
  • Specific state-unique instructions should be provided within the index responses.

Note: The formats presented in this section assume that the response to a snowmobile
registration inquiry is via on-line direct interface database. A state that is unable to
meet this format may return the information in a different format providing it is possible
to translate it by an out-of-state recipient.

Snowmobile Registration NIEM Specifications

This section describes the format and provides examples for Snowmobile Registration queries and responses (SQ/SR).

All Nlets NIEM messages must be based on the Nlets NIEM Message Structure and include the standard Nlets XML Header as detailed in Message Structure. The NIEM header and hierarchy of the elements in this section have been omitted to avoid redundancy. The associated schemas and instances should be consulted to determine the correct XPaths of the elements.

Nlets now provides a standardized response format for this message type. The standardized format for this message is anticipated to be supported on the Nlets production system by July of 2016. Please contact Kate Silhol at ksilhol@nlets.org for additional information regarding implementation.

Legacy (DEPRECATED)

Snowmobile Registration Legacy Specifications

This section describes the format and provides examples for Snowmobile Registration queries and responses (SQ/SR).

The required format for inquiries and the optional format for responses are described in the sections that follow.

  • All messages will be preceded by a standard input header.
  • No embedded spaces or special characters (i.e. hyphens) should be in the inquiry.
  • All data elements are preceded by a prefix and terminated by a period with the exception of the last character of the message.
  • Control characters are permitted throughout the text of the message and should be ignored by the queried state when examining the inquiry.

Query Formats

The format for a snowmobile inquiry is as follows.

Entry # Char. Explanation
SQ. 2 Message type followed by a period.
Message Header 13-25 Standard input message header, may include control
field.
TXT 3 Fixed filed prefix to beginning of message.
CR,LF,DEL 3 Control characters (optional).
THEN EITHER:
REG/ 4 Prefix to identify Registration number.
Registration # 10 State registration number; 10 alphanumeric
characters. If number has more than 10, use last 10.
OR
VIN/ 4 Prefix to identify snowmobile ID#.
VIN 20 20 alphanumeric character.
OR
NAM/ 4 Prefix to identify name.

& NCIC format followed by a period.
DOB/ 4 Prefix to identify date of birth.

Response Formats

The format presented below is a suggested guideline for participating states. States may follow this guideline; however, if they cannot, their own formats are permissible.

  • States not utilizing the suggested format should make every effort to insure that usage of special codes or abbreviations that would be difficult to understand by other states be kept to a minimum.
  • Data elements not available within a state's records may be omitted.
  • If the inquiry was processed and there was no information on file, a "no record" message is returned.
  • Positive responses should be compressed to eliminate spaces.

Participating states that come up with multiple hits based on a single response are encouraged to utilize abridged or "index" response hits:

  • The inquirer could then examine the hit and make a second inquiry on exact registration number.
  • If there are too many index records for a single response, the state may send any part of the list.
  • The inquirer would then have the option of requesting the remainder of the information or terminating the message.
  • Specific state-unique instructions should be provided within the index responses.
