Under regulations administered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a vehicle identification number or VIN is “a series of Arabic numbers and Roman letters that is assigned to a motor vehicle for identification purposes. The VIN system is essential to increase the accuracy and efficiency of vehicle recall campaigns undertaken to remedy noncompliance with the Federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSS) or defects related to motor vehicle safety.
An efficient VIN system is also necessary to law enforcement officials as an anti-theft mechanism, to insurance companies to identify and classify vehicles, to researchers for identifying vehicles in crash investigation programs, and to State governments for vehicle registration and titling purposes.
Every vehicle has a VIN. Assigned at the time your vehicle was manufactured, it is unique to your vehicle. Think of it as your vehicle's DNA or fingerprint. No two vehicles have the same number.
The VIN is used to track things like your vehicle's insurance policies, accident reports, and anytime you have body or engine work performed on your vehicle.
There are 17 numbers and alphabets as said earlier (17 positions) in a VIN and you can divide them into three groups: World Manufacturer Identifier, Vehicle Descriptor Section, and Vehicle Identifier Section.
