In order to run your vehicle identification numbers, you need to go to the DMV website. There is a section where you can fill in the details of your car number and you can view the history. You can check out http://www.dmv.org/vehicle-history/find-vin.php.
You can go to www.carfax.com and put in the vin number and you'll find out what kind of vehicle it is for free. It'll give you the year, brand and model of the vehicle. They also have a place to put in license plate numbers.
