How to Find the VIN

A Vehicle Identification Number, also known as VIN, is a serial number attached to each vehicle for identification purposes. You can find the VIN in the following places:

Inside the Vehicle
  • On the driver’s side dashboard – stand outside the vehicle and look at the corner where the dashboard meets the windshield.
  • In the driver's side door or door jamb – the VIN is usually printed on a sticker in that location.


Other locations
  • Vehicle insurance card / insurance policy
  • Vehicle title
