VIN stands for Vehicle Identification Number. A VIN consists of 17 characters and serves as a unique identifier for a specific vehicle. At Instant Car History, you can use either a VIN or a license plate and state to get a Instant Car History.
A VIN can often be found on the driver-side door, near where the door latches as well as on the lower-left hand corner of the dashboard, in front of the steering wheel on the windshield. If you own the vehicle, you can find it on the title, registration card or insurance documents. If you need assistance connect with us on live chat or toll free.
