The VIN numbers for bulletproof cars work the same as on other vehicles. These are street-legal vehicles that have been upgraded with added safety features. From our friends at Driving-tests.org:
“A vehicle identification number (VIN) is a unique code that is assigned to every motor vehicle when it’s manufactured. The VIN is a 17-character string of letters and numbers without intervening spaces or the letters Q (q), I (i), and O (o); these are omitted to avoid confusion with the numerals 0 and 1. Each section of the VIN provides a specific piece of information about the vehicle, including the year, country, and factory of manufacture; the make and model; and the serial number. See below how you verify your VIN number on your bulletproof car. VINs are usually printed in a single line.”
Here is a great image showing where to find your vin number even on your armoured vehicle:
On most passenger cars, you may find the VIN number on the front of the dashboard on the driver’s side. The best way to see it is to look through the windshield from outside the car. You may also find the VIN number on the driver’s side door pillar. Open the door and look around the area where the door latches to the car. A motorcycle’s VIN is usually on the steering neck below the handlebars, although sometimes it’s on the motor or on the frame near the motor. A semitrailer’s VIN is located on the front part of the semitrailer on the left side.
If you can’t find the VIN number on the vehicle, you should also be able to locate it on your vehicle’s title or liability insurance documents.
So depending on the state or country you live in your department of motor vehicles may require you to get a VIN verification for certain vehicles and certain situations. All the vehicles that Armormax builds are street legal and VIN verified.
