Chassis Number #API (VIN) available
A chassis number, or VIN number is etched into the chassis of all cars, and is unique to the car. The format of the number describes different aspects of the car, and this format varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. Without a manufacturer specific search, you can’t get much information, apart from the make, model, and age.
We’re offering a beta service on http://www.regcheck.org.uk/api/reg.asmx?op=VinCheck that allows a lookup of VIN numbers across several manufacturers. You’ll need a free account with regcheck.org.uk to get access.
As a beta feature, we also offer a VIN (Chassis number) check, where it is possible to return some basic information from a Chassis number.
