Call the police and explain why you need to know. If you are looking for a legitimate reason they can look up the number in their database. I do not believe that database is open to the public.

If you lose a license plate or plates and need the license plate number, you can look up your license plate number even if you no longer physically have your own.

They can find that info out by running the plate number and then, when the owner i sdisplayed, running the name of the owner. The owner of a vehicle does not have to have a license.

There is no legal way to find out a persons license plate number. The police can help find it if there I a valid reason.

If you would like to find the owner of a car that a license plate belongs to you would need to contact law enforcement. If you could do that for someone then they could do it for you and would you want someone accessing your personal information with just your license plate number? Only law enforcement and the DMV have access to those files.

The license plate has number and says The first state. Why it has a number so that the police can find you if you did something bad.

You would have to submit an inquiry with the California Department of Motor Vehicles.

It is not possible to find old license plate numbers. The numbers are not public information. If it was your own license plate, you may be able to find it out from your auto insurance carrier, who may still have it on file.

License Plate data is considered private and cannot be released to the public. If the vehicle has committed an offense, the plate should be reported to police.

I just saw a handsome guy driving by. I noted his license plate number. My girl friend told me there is such kind of free license plate lookup. How do I find this free license plate lookup service?

Yes you can. Call the tag agency and give them the tag number on the car. They can tell you who the car is registered to and what address it is registered to.

Only police and the courts can legally obtain and release that information.

You can't. Contact law enforcement if you want to know the name of the owner of a car. Privacy laws exist to protect people.

The license plate for this character is 3BS83Y8. You can find this and more information about charmed at fan sites online.

I would go to the police dept.- though they probably won't tell you who the owner is due to privacy issues. You might want to tell the police that you found the plate and you would like to return it to the owner.

Wisconsin allows you to look up a license plate number for your own personal purposes. You can look up your license plate number to find out when your plates expire, if you will need an emissions test, whether your plates are suspended or not and you will get your RRN number this way as well.

If you're the DMV or the police, you put it into your computer and it tells you. If you're neither of those, then you don't.

License plate numbers are found on license plates. License plates are commonly found on the front and back fenders of a car. They can be found on the trunk of certain car models as well.

If you are speeding the speed cameras take a photo of your license plate so the police can track you down. Also, if you have stolen a car, or something criminal like that, and the police are chasing you and you get away they will have got your license plate number to track you down. This is why the police find almost all criminals. A license plate also serves as a visible marker that you have paid your registration fees and taxes, have insurance and that the owner is licensed.

if I have only the vehicle identification number you can help me that person

User Avatar

You have to really have a good reason for wanting the info but law enforcement personnel can get the numbers owner.

To find a license plate number it is necessary to contact the issuing body of licenses. With information, a computer search may produce the results. Being sensitive information it may be necessary to contact the office.

If you have identified the owner of the vehicle, just file a lawsuit against him. And while you're at it, swear out a criminal warrant charging him with leaving the scene.
