VIN Verifications

VIN Verifications

A Vehicle Identification Number “VIN” Verification is a physical inspection of the vehicle’s unique identification number. The vehicle must be present for us to do a VIN Verification.


VIN Verifications are done by APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please submit your appointment request at least 24 hours in advance. Once your request has been scheduled, you will receive an email confirmation.

How To Schedule A VIN Verification:

At least one piece of official documentation such as the registration, title, sales agreement, or certificate of origin is required. A VIN Verification requires the VIN to be readable on the vehicle and match the official documentation.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will provide the VIN Verification form and complete it for you; do not print or complete the form yourself.

A Certified VIN Inspection is required if the VIN on the vehicle is not readable, the vehicle has a salvage title, or it has been converted to a street worthy vehicle. Certified VIN Inspections can only be done by the Colorado State Patrol, and may be scheduled by CLICKING HERE.

Please read the following information about each location before scheduling your VIN Verification appointment.

If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, please do so at least 24 hours before your appointment. Appointments may be rescheduled or canceled through your confirmation email.
