What is a scooter frame number?

A scooter's frame number is also known as the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or chassis number. This number is affixed to the scooter by the manufacturer to give the vehicle a unique identity. Based on the frame number, the scooter can be identified. Thus, the scooter can be linked to the corresponding license plate number and, more importantly, the owner. Scooters are, in fact, a popular target for thieves. They remove the frame number so they can easily sell the scooter.

Are you planning to buy a scooter? Then always check the frame number carefully. If you drive a scooter without a frame number and are stopped by the police, they will always assume that the scooter has been stolen. You will then be suspected of receiving stolen goods. The scooter will be confiscated and you can be taken to the police station as a suspect. Of course you want to avoid that! Here you can read where the number can be on the scooter and how to check it.

Where is the frame number on a scooter?

We can't tell you exactly where the frame number is on your scooter. This is because it varies by type of scooter where it is placed. However, it is almost always punched into the frame. It may also be a frame-mounted plate. Look under the saddle or buddyseat of your scooter. Also, the number is always in the scooter's papers. Are you buying a used scooter? Then always check if the number in the papers matches the number on the scooter.
