Why would No-Info be available for a VIN or License Plate (TAG) search?

Investigators utilize all legal avenues available to them to investigator Vehicles requested. There are many public and private systems that allow investigators access for specific DPPA purposes.

If you requested a Vehicle search with a valid DPPA purpose the investigators often contact the Motor Vehicle offices in that state on your behalf.

If an organization does not have the vehicle Tag or VIN on record for the state you submitted, your search results would be negative (No-Info).

The reasons the vehicle would not be found can include:

  • Vehicle is not currently registered or has not been registered for at least the last 2 years in the state you specified in your search.
  • The most common reason for No-Info available is an error by the customer when entering the information.
  • Tag’s & VIN’s are typically numbers and letters, don’t mix up the number “1” for the letter “I”, or the letter “g” for the number “9”.
  • Numbers often are entered as letters or visa versa, be very careful.

Once your data is entered and the investigator submits it to the agencies (which is immediate), we can not recheck your search without incurring an additional fee. Late Model VINs are typically 17 characters. If your search results are negative, (No-Info) your fee is still non-refundable since the agencies, which provide this information, require prepayment of fees no matter what the results are.
