What’s a Vehicle Identification Number?
A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the 17-character identifier for your car, truck, or motorcycle. It looks like this:
1VXBR12EXCP901213, and encodes the vehicle’s manufacturer, features, and serial number (The VIN decoder below can decode this information). No two vehicles have the same VIN, so it serves as your car’s fingerprint– this allows for all reports of accidents, title problems, insurance incidents, and more to be tracked through each vehicle’s VIN.
