Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)Commencing in September 1980, Motor Vehicle Safety Standard regulation FMVSS-115 required a 17-digit VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on all new vehicles sold in the United States. (In Canada, the applicable regulation is Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations Standard 115 of the Motor Vehicle Safety Act.) In June of 1983 the American requirements of the regulation moved to Part 565.
A Vehicle Identification Number, commonly abbreviated to VIN, is a unique serial number used by the automotive industry to identify individual motor vehicles.
Modern day VINs consist of 17 characters which do not include the letters I, O, or Q (to avoid confusion with numerals 1 and 0).
The vehicle identification number is divided into four parts:
- the World Manufacturer's Identification (WMI - three characters);
- the Vehicle Description Section (VDS - five characters);
- the check digit;
- the Vehicle Identification Section (VIS - eight characters).
