Verifying a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is a series of numbers and letters that is specific to an individual vehicle, much like a serial number. Verifying your car’s VIN is necessary if you need to get it registered. The owner of the vehicle must swear before a Notary that the VIN and Odometer reading are correct (FS 319.23)

Newer vehicles require a Verification FORM whereby the Notary performs two separate notarial acts to complete the form.
