Any vehicle manufactured after 1989 must have a VIN and is exactly 17 characters long. Please note that a VIN will never have the letters 'I' or 'Q'. Pre-1989 vehicles many have VIN shorter that 17 characters and they are also known as Chassis number. So when you buy vintage or classic vehicles you need a Chassis check.

Q. Can I use registration plate number instead of VIN?

Yes you can. On our website you can use the vehicle registration plate number commonly known as 'rego number' to do a vehicle check. Using plate number instead of VIN number is much easier and faster.

Q. Why VIN is so hard?

Let's face it. VIN numbers are a pain. They are too long, not easy to remember and are error prone. It is very easy to make a mistake when you get the VIN from the seller or you could easily get a character wrong. The worst part is if you enter a wrong VIN, you might not get a vehicle report at all or end up getting report for a wrong vehicle.
