Motor Vehicle Registration with Only a
Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
How do I obtain motor vehicle registration information if all I have is a VIN but don't know which state the car is registered?
An easy solution would be to make a VIN inquiry at www.carfax.com and subscribe to their unlimited VIN search which is a low one time fee. This will give you historical information for the State that the vehicle was registered. You can then make your inquiry to the correct DMV
