How can I find out the chassis number?
The chassis number is also called the frame number or vehicle identification number (VIN). This is a unique code that every vehicle must have. The chassis number makes it possible to distinguish between all the different vehicles. The number is engraved on the chassis/frame of the car, hence the name. The chassis number can be traced in various ways. In this article we will tell you how to find the chassis number of your car.
Look up the chassis number on the car
The chassis number is always engraved on the chassis/frame of the car. The exact spot where the chassis number is engraved can differ from car to car, but it is almost always located in places and parts that are difficult to replace or modify. Criminals sometimes clone the chassis number in order to place it on a stolen car. This is also called refitting a car. If the chassis number on the frame and on the registration certificate do not match, it may be a stolen vehicle. The chassis number can also often be found on the dashboard of the car, on the driver's side.
Find the chassis number on the registration certificate
The chassis number is not only found in the car itself, but is also always on the car's registration certificate. The chassis number is linked to the registration number of your car. It is therefore forbidden to fit a different chassis number to the vehicle without informing the RDW. By means of the vehicle identification number, a mechanic can see, among other things, exactly when the car was manufactured and which parts were used. This is especially easy when ordering new parts for a repair. You will find the chassis number on the back of your registration card, at the very top.
