Every vehicle you see in Missouri has a unique 17-digit number that serves to be an identifier for this car or bike. This code consists of 17 symbols including both letters and numbers. The whole code is generated according to the local US laws where each of the symbols stands for some information from the manufacturer. You can decipher the code if you know what each position stands for. For example. You can find out the data about the country of the production, the make and the model of the vehicle with only the first three symbols. You can decipher the whole code yourself or use the online Missouri VIN check service to make the process fast and easy.
Now you know what the code is, it's time to see where you can find it. If you look at the car, you can see the code under the windshield on the driver's side. You will easily notice a dashboard with the code without the need to open the hood. If you can't find it there or the code is covered with something, this car is too suspicious to purchase. If the surface of the dashboard is clear, smooth and you can see every character of the code, you can make a photo of it or simply rewrite into your notebook for further checks. Other locations are on the engine block side, the driver's door and so on. You can ask the owner of the car about the locations or you can consult the manual that comes with the car.
