The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) has a publicly accessible, free VINCheckⓇ service. Click through services may not be free.
What is a VIN? It’s an acronym for Vehicle Identification Number.
(Teachable moment about a debatable issue: not all abbreviations are acronyms; all acronyms are abbreviations)
Important research note:
VINCheckⓇ is not an official source of vehicle VIN numbers and you should always confirm any search results with official sources, e.g. law enforcement and state motor vehicle agencies or other entities with authorized access to official VIN databases.
