More than 200 new locations to do VIN checks

Posted: Updated:
WETHERSFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

More than 200 agencies will soon be able to do complete checks on vehicle identification numbers, according to Department of Motor Vehicles officials.

Currently, only seven DMV offices perform the service, but starting July 1, nearly 230 emissions testing stations and other garages will be able to check VIN.

VIN verification is a procedure for an official check that a vehicle identification number matches the paperwork for that vehicle. This verification is needed as part of the vehicle registration process.

DMV officials said this change will allow customers to choose more convenient locations.

"We are continually working to make DMV more accessible and provide services that are easy for our customers to use," said DMV Commissioner Melody Currey in a statement Wednesday. "This is another in those efforts."

VIN verifications, which cost $10, are required for any vehicle registered in Connecticut for the first time and not needing an emissions test.

On Monday, VIN verifications for passenger cars, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, and trailers will only be performed at the emissions test stations and other garages. There are some exceptions for certain vehicles, including vehicles being registered in Connecticut for the first time needing emissions test. They also get VIN checks done with the test.

A complete list of these VIN verification stations can be found at this website.
