A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is your car’s 17 character unique identifier. A VIN can be used when tracking recalls, registrations, warranties, claims and theft. It can be located in one of the following places on your car:

  • Where the corner of the dashboard meets the windshield on the driver’s side.
  • On the door post (where the door latches when it’s closed) on the driver’s side.
  • At the front of the engine block (under your bonnet).
  • At the front end of frame behind the driver’s side tire.
  • Inside of the driver’s side door jamb (where the door connects to the body of the car).

If you’re unable to locate it, you can call your dealership, give them the make and the model of your vehicle and they’ll tell you where the VIN is located. You can also check your vehicle’s registration certificate or the owner’s manual (if you have it).
