What is VIN and where is it?

VIN is a unique vehicle code, which consists of 17 letters and numbers without spaces, while the letters I, O and Q are not used in the VIN number due to the similarity with the numbers 1 and 0, VIN numbers are most often printed in one line.
The VIN number contains information about the country of the manufacturer, make, model, year of manufacture, serial nomenclature of the vehicle.
The VIN format is based on ISO 3779 (adopted in the USA and Canada in 1977) and ISO 3779: 1983 (last revised from 1996).
Identification numbers are applied or embossed on one-piece body or chassis components and on specially made number plates.

All places on the car body where the VIN number can be indicated.

The VIN number is located under the bonnet at the front of the cylinder block on most vehicles, and on the bulkhead between the bonnet and the passenger compartment.
The VIN number is also located on the windshield and is most often located on the driver's side under the lower part of the windshield from the outside of the vehicle.
The VIN number most often in older cars can be indicated in the front of the frame on the driver's side on the door sill.
The VIN number is most often indicated in new cars on the inner pillar on the side of the driver's door.



How to decipher the VIN number of a vehicle?

VIN-number contains 17 characters in which data about the vehicle are encrypted: make, model, version, year of manufacture, engine and transmission, body type and much more.

In the figure below you will find out what information the symbols of the VIN number contain.

How to decode (VIN) vehicle identification number.

The VIN number of the vehicle consists of three parts.
WMI (World Manufacturers Identification) - the world manufacturer's index (from the 1st to the 3rd characters of the VIN number).
VDS (Vehicle Description Section) - a descriptive part (from the 4th to the 9th characters of the VIN number).
VIS (Vehicle Identification Section) - a distinctive part (from the 10th to the 17th characters of the VIN number).

WMI (World Manufacturers Identification) - international manufacturer identification code, consists of three characters (letters or numbers).
Several WMIs can be assigned to a manufacturer, but the same number must not be assigned to another manufacturer for at least 30 years from the moment it was first used by the previous (first) manufacturer.
If the manufacturer produces less than 500 vehicles per year, then the third character of the code will be the number 9.
The first character in WMI is a letter or number that represents a geographic area code. Several symbols are assigned to each of the zones.
The second character in WMI is a letter or number that represents the country. The country is determined by the combination of the first and second character of the code.
The third WMI character is a letter or number assigned to the manufacturer by the national organization. Sometimes it can mean the type of vehicle or the production department.

VDS (Vehicle Description Section) - consists of six characters (letters or numbers) that define the type and characteristics of the vehicle.
The 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th VDS characters describe the characteristics of the vehicle, such as: model line, body type, engine type, steering wheel position, power system and transmission type, drive and etc.
The 9th character of VDS, for manufacturers from the USA and China, is a security check digit, it is one of the means of protection against interrupting a VIN number. European and Asian companies do not always follow this standard and use this symbol for additional information about the vehicle.

VIS (Vehicle Identification Section) is an indicative part consisting of eight characters (letters or numbers) and contains: year of manufacture, assembly plant, serial number of the vehicle. In this case, the last four characters must be numbers.
