A VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) is a unique 17-digit code that identifies your vehicle and provides access to valuable information about its history. All cars and light trucks built after 1981 have a VIN.


The most common place to find a VIN is on your vehicle’s dashboard, specifically near where the dashboard meets the edge of the windshield on the driver’s side.

If you don’t see your VIN on the dashboard, it can also be found on driver-side doorjamb stickers, title documents, vehicle registrations and insurance documents.
