Present world is an era of technology where communication can possible within a short time. For searching information from the web we need a computer, mobile device, internet connectivity, etc. But accessing information now-adays is little it time consuming and sometimes not cost worthy for all users. So, for solving this problem we proposed an application. This application is called as ―An efficient and time saving we service based android application‖. At the time of development of an application for android operated devices, there are some requirements such as to provide instant access to vehicle registration details and driving license details. Through the android application, users will give driving license number or registration number as input for searching license details or registration details respectively. Then this application will search the required information from the live server through a web service which will be present on the web server. There are mainly two parts of this application, the first part is the development of the android application and the second part is the development of the web service. This application has been developed using Eclipse IDE and Android SDK. The web service is developed using Net Beans IDE.
