VIN Check

What is VIN

The vehicle identification number (VIN) is composed of 17 characters (digits and capital letters) and acts as a unique identifier for the vehicle. It is currently the manufacturer's responsibility to assign an individual 17-character Vehicle Identification Number, or VIN, to each vehicle during production. The VIN consists of both capital letters and numbers, except for the letters "I", "O", and "Q", since these letters could be confused with zero and one.

Where can I find the VIN

In most cases, you will find the VIN below the front windshield, on the dashboard at the driver's side. You may also find the VIN number on the driver's side door pillar. You can often also find it on your vehicle's registration card. Although the VIN there may have been incorrectly spelled while during the data entry. We recommend checking it on the vehicle itself.

The 10th digit in a VIN

This is the vehicle's model year in the VIN. However, it is not necessarily the year the vehicle was built. It is common for manufacturers to start building model years towards the end of the previous year. Aside from the other letters that are not included in the VIN, the number zero and the letters "U" and "Z" are also not included.
