License Plate Tag Number Lookup

 Your license plate number or, when combined with your registration stickers, your tags, contains a lot of information both about you and your vehicle. A tag number lookup can help identify important information about a vehicle and possibly owner information. That information can be especially useful if you are thinking of buying a used vehicle or you need to renew your registration. We’ll take a closer look at what tag numbers are, where you can find them, and what they say about a vehicle. A tag number lookup online can save you a lot of hassle when looking up the details of a vehicle.

Tag Number LookupWhere You Can Find Your Tag Number

 When people talk about “tags” they are usually referring to either license plate numbers or, more specifically, to their car’s registration stickers. So finding your tag number doesn’t always mean the same thing depending on the context. Usually, however, it means license plate number. Obviously, you can find your license plate number on your car itself. If you can’t reach your car at the moment, you should also be able to find your license plate number on your vehicle’s registration form or on your insurance policy.

 Keep in mind that registration stickers–which show that your registration is current–are usually found on your license plate. However, in some states, such as Texas, these tags are instead found on the windshield. Registration stickers usually include your license plate number, registration expiry date, and a number identifying the issuing county.

 Also, your tags are not the same as your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). This number is unique to your particular car and can usually be found on the inside of your driver’s side door or on the windshield. The VIN is also found on the registration and title. A VIN lookup is another useful way of finding out the history of a particular vehicle, including recall notices and accident reports.

When Can Be Found from a Tag Number Lookup

Looking up a tag number can be really helpful for a lot of different circumstances, regardless of whether you are looking up your own tag number or another vehicle’s. The type of information that tags can reveal depends on the state. In some states, for example, tags are owned by individuals, meaning that when a car is sold or transferred then the tags for the vehicle will need to be replaced. In other states, the tags stay with the vehicle and not the driver, in which case those tags will reveal a lot of information about the vehicle, but not so much about the driver’s record.

 You can look up a tag or license plate number online. Some states allow you to do this online either for free or for a small fee. A license plate number lookup may reveal very useful information like accident reports, recall notices, DUI arrests, and more. A tag lookup will also help you verify that your own tags are current. The specific information contained will vary from state to state. Many third-party databases, like SearchQuarry.com, also allow you to perform a tag number lookup or VIN lookup online.

 How to Renew Your License Plate Tags

Keeping your tags current shows that you have paid your registration fees. If your tags are expired, then you run the risk of being pulled over by the police and fined. You can renew or replace lost tags through your state’s department of motor vehicles. In some states, renewing your vehicle’s registration can be done entirely online so long as you have a credit card and your driving record is clean. In other states, you will still have to visit the DMV in person and renew your registration after waiting in line. A few states may not allow you to renew your tags online, but they do offer express booths at DMV offices so that you can skip the lineup.

    Chris, if you’ve experienced a hit and run you should contact the police ASAP and file a police report. Then after you file the report, give the police report and details to your auto insurance company to get your vehicle repaired in a timely fashion. The police will follow up with the car accident and report back. This typically takes a few days to a couple weeks depending on how difficult it is to track down the hit and run driver.

    Your tag number information should also be on your registration. This would be the easiest way to verify that these are your tags. You can also contact the DMV and request a duplicate tag be issued to you since yours was stolen. You might also consider filing a police report since this is also illegal to steal another person’s tags and falsely place them on another vehicle.

    2. Submit a completed duplicate tag form
    3. Make sure you’re the registered owner
