Therefore, my article will be useful to all those who are faced with the search for VIN for the first time, and especially to the beautiful half of humanity.

If you decide to refresh your knowledge or just switch your thoughts from everyday worries and read - welcome under the cut!


VIN (eng. Vehicle Identification Number) is a unique vehicle code consisting of 17 characters. The code provides information about the manufacturer and characteristics of the vehicle, as well as the year of manufacture. The structure of the code is based on ISO 3779-1983 and ISO 3780 standards. Identification numbers are applied to integral parts of the body or chassis and on specially made number plates (nameplates).

In other words, VIN (hereinafter we give the term more commonly used on the Russian Internet - VIN) is a set of characters that identifies a car or motorcycle and tells all the information about it. Each vehicle is assigned its own unique code, which is not repeated on other vehicles. Like a human DNA code.

And here they are - special number plates:

Yes, I would like to separately note that in place of the VIN code your vehicle may have a body (frame) number. It usually consists of 10-13 characters and looks like this on a car plate:

or on a motorcycle:

The frame number, like the VIN, serves to identify the equipment, although it carries less information . The characters in this number are written with a hyphen. The first part carries information about the type and brand of the vehicle, and the last 5-8 digits indicate the serial number (the order in which the equipment left the assembly line).

Body/frame number mostly found on vehicles for the Japanese domestic market. You have probably come across beautiful letters JDM more than once on loud tinted cars or in publics dedicated to drifting, tuning and various sports related topics. This abbreviation just means Japanese Domestic Market - Japanese Domestic Market.

JDM technology has a very large army of fans around the world, and Russia is no exception. On the World Wide Web you can find a lot of information, as well as fan clubs, workshops, tuning studios that have dedicated themselves to serving the style of the Japanese Domestic Market.


First of all, of course, let's look at the registration documents for our equipment. For a car and a motorcycle, the PTS (vehicle passport) serves as an “identity document”. Here it is:

In this example, the VIN is indicated in paragraph 1, and in paragraph 8 it is duplicated as the body number. But there are TCPs where the VIN is affixed in paragraph 7 or 8, and in paragraph 1 (VIN) it is indicated "NONE".

If you are a happy owner of a snowmobile or an ATV and want to find a VIN, take the PSM (passport of a self-propelled vehicle) and find the item “machine (frame) serial number”:

I think everything is clear here. Dealt with documents. Let's learn how to look for VIN directly on the vehicle itself.


Depending on the country of manufacture, the identification number may be located differently. As a rule, the VIN is duplicated in different places or can even be applied to all the main elements of the body. This makes it easier to find it and at the same time more reliably protect equipment from illegal actions.

VIN can be stamped either directly on the body (frame) or on a special number plate attached to the body with rivets. Most modern cars (especially for the US market) have a VIN, which is located in a special window under the windshield. It can be seen without opening the hood:

The number is usually duplicated on a sticker that can be found on the pillar or threshold in the driver's door opening.

VIN is often marked on an iron plate located under the hood in a conspicuous place:

Or stamped directly on the car body in the place of the partition between the engine compartment and the passenger compartment:

On cars with a frame structure of the body, the VIN is often applied to the side members:

Another common place is on the floor in front of the driver's seat .

Move the seat as far back as possible and fold down the mat:


On some vehicles, the VIN plate is in the trunk, in the spare wheel compartment:


also on the right)

In the place of the steering joint, the VIN is knocked out directly on the frame:

And duplicated on the plate:

Some manufacturers (BMW, in particular) place the VIN on their bikes a little differently:

and like this:

VIN on maxi scooters is usually stamped on the frame, as shown:


Here are the most popular places:

On the plate under the seat:

On the frame behind the front wheel:

At the bottom of the frame:

Front of the frame:


On the CVT housing:


Traditionally, the VIN is stamped on snowmobiles on the frame on the right side of the tunnel, there is also a plate on which the identification number is duplicated. In addition, on many models, the coveted combination of letters and numbers can be found under the seat.

On the "tunnel" on the right:

Under the snowmobile seat on the sign:

Now that we have visually familiarized ourselves with the locations of the identification number, I offer a small life hack to find the treasured place. As a rule, each user manual begins with pictures showing where the numbered units of the equipment are located. If you have such a booklet in printed and electronic form (you can find it on the World Wide Web) - open the first pages, look at the indicated place, and voila - the quest is completed!

Here's how it looks in my manual:

In place A we move the driver's seat back, bend the mat (maybe you will need to open the cover) and see the VIN, which is stamped directly on the body; in place B, open the hood and find the VIN on a metal plate.



The identification number can reveal a lot of useful information about a vehicle. Before buying, the future owner will be able to find out the real mileage, the number of former owners, find out if the equipment was involved in an accident, if it was stolen, and if there are any restrictions on registration actions.

Currently, it is possible to scan and recognize codes using both special scanners and various mobile applications that use the camera. You can also check by VIN code using one of the many online services.


It's no secret: in the search and selection of spare parts, the identification number is assistant number 1.

It allows:
