The VIN is located in several specific places on the vehicle itself and on its associated paperwork. You can check the registration and insurance documents as well. The most easily accessible VIN location on the vehicle itself is on the driver's side interior dash, visible through the base of the windshield. You should also find it on the engine block at the front and on the door post of the driver's side door. If you have problems locating the VIN, check the maker's website for more detailed information.
