Search for vehicle history records with a valid US license plate number!

Search by license plate

We’ve made it easier than ever to get an AutoCheck® vehicle history report. You can search with a vehicle identification number (VIN), or you can search with a valid license plate number and state. Searching via a license plate and state is a terrific option if you can’t find the VIN, it’s hard to read or your car has
no VIN.

In the box below, simply enter the license plate number and state. Once the information is submitted, records will be returned on that plate. Some searches may return multiple records. This often indicates that a vehicle owner has transferred his or her license plate from vehicle to vehicle. For instance, five years ago you may have purchased a Toyota sedan and you recently traded it in for a Honda SUV and kept your current license plate. Both vehicles will be tied to the same plate.

If multiple records are returned, simply select the vehicle record from the drop-down box and get the report. Then begin enjoying all of the unique benefits of choosing a vehicle history report from Experian Automotive to help you understand, compare and select the right vehicle.

No VIN? Check the vehicle history with a license plate and state instead.
