DMV Car Plate Search
Until recently the only way to get information about a car plate was to visit the DMV in person. This meant that you would have to take a number and wait in line to speak to someone. Then once your number is called you’ll have to fill out the correct paperwork and have a valid reason to obtain the information you are requesting. The DMV will not just give information out to anyone, so you must select a reason for obtaining the vehicle related information. This might be your vehicle or you might be purchasing a used vehicle that you want to know the details of. Then you’ll have to pay a nominal fee for a copy of the vehicle records.
Online Car Plate Records vs. DMV Car Plate Records
Online car plate records are mainly for reference and are usually not official copies of a vehicle record. A DMV car plate record will have more information and will be endorsed by the motor vehicle department. If you’re out to just verify vehicle information then an online vehicle records website might be the best fit for you. This way you won’t have to wait in line at the DMV to get this information. If you need an official or endorsed copy of a vehicle record then the DMV is the place to visit. Unfortunately there are not many online websites that will give you “official” information.
