$table->string('plate_number');
 
$table->timestamps();
$table->softDeletes();
});

app/Models/Vehicle.php:

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\SoftDeletes;
 
class Vehicle extends Model
{
use HasFactory;
use SoftDeletes;
 
protected $fillable = ['user_id', 'plate_number'];
}

  • store
  • show
  • update
  • delete
