As automobile sector is witnessing a paradigm shift from Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) based vehicles to smart electric vehicles, a new concept of connected vehicles has emerged that is able to provide a number of services to its users. Internet of Vehicles has now transformed to an indispensable platform of information exchange among vehicles, city infrastructure, drivers and other connected entities. Due to highly dynamic nature of Internet of Vehicles, there is need of a dynamic service discovery infrastructure that can cater to Internet of Vehicle specific challenges. This paper is a step ahead in that direction to provide a distributed service discovery protocol that facilitates service discovery and service selection for Internet of Vehicles environment. We have proposed a clustering based service discovery approach that makes use of neighbor awareness to find neighboring vehicles. Proposed protocol has been validated by running extensive simulations and results show the improvement in terms of query success rate, transmission rate and transmission cost by a considerable margin.
