Q:

How do I find the owner of a license plate for free?

A:

In many states, submitting a specific form to the local Department of Motor Vehicles may find the owner of a particular car by license plate number. After submission, these forms must be approved by a DMV employee to ensure that the reason for the request is valid.

Specific request rules and regulations are set by each state's DMV. If possible, searchers should consult the office in the state in which the vehicle is registered to learn details. The amount of information the DMV gives out varies from state to state, but the VIN and current owner's name are generally included in the report.
