License Plate Decoding

Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) are long. Stop typing them out. VINs play a important roll in the automotive industry whether that being for software, parts catalogs, insurance companies etc. 17 digit VINs are a hassle, they're often mistyped or entered incorrectly.

Our North American Vehicle Database, which includes passenger cars, motorcycles, atvs, light and heavy trucks and trailers is the most up to date source to ensure that you can successfully retrieve information from a license plate. We cover all vehicles 1981-present as long as the registration is up to date and actively registered.
