  • Q:

    How does someone trace a vehicle owner?

    A:

    Although it is not always 100 percent accurate, it is possible to trace a vehicle's vehicle identification number, or VIN and previous titles through the local Department of Motor Vehicles, or DMV. VINs were standardized after 1981, so every vehicle produced that year or later should have an individual identification number that can be tracked if every change in ownership of the vehicle was properly documented.
