Your license plate number or, when combined with your registration stickers, your tags, contains a lot of information both about you and your vehicle.
A tag number lookup can help identify important information about a vehicle and possibly owner information.
How do I find my car tag number?
Look inside of the car, particularly on the driver’s side. In the spot where the windshield and dashboard meet, you will see the VIN. It may also be located on a sticker placed on the driver-side doorjamb. You can also get your vehicle identification number by checking your car title.
Can you run a tag number?
Unfortunately, running a driver’s license plate number for any reason or purpose is not only impossible to do for free – it is illegal. Only law enforcement officers can run license plate numbers, and they have the tools to do so.
What are vehicle tags?
Vehicle registration includes a tag number and a vehicle identification number that are unique to your car. By definition, vehicle registration means that your car and its unique license plate and VIN are on file with the government.
