DMV offices in different states often fail to share vehicle history records with each other, so the reports obtained there may be incomplete. As a rule, such reports are limited only to title, lien and theft checks. However, if you want to check the VIN at the DMV, on Feb 18, 2010, CA DMV accounted that consumers can access vehicle history data through the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS). There are many online vehicle history companies that distribute NMVTIS reports which include title branding and odometer tampering history.

Check California VIN - What Is the VIN Like?

Some car shoppers wondered what a California VIN should look like. There is no such a thing as California VIN check (as well as any other state’s). California VIN is the same as all other VIN numbers, VIN numbers do not vary depending on the state - they are assigned when the vehicles is manufactured and remain the same for its lifetime, no matter what state the vehicles is registered in. What changes from state to state is the license plate or registration plate.
