Vehicle-Registration Reports



To calculate suitable premiums for automobile risks, you need complete and accurate information about the vehicles that your policyholders drive. But a policyholder who buys a used car may not know that it was previously junked, salvaged, or flooded. And policyholders may forget to disclose important information, such as lapses in registration or shared ownership of a vehicle.

Now Verisk offers easy access to Vehicle-Registration Reports through a strategic alliance with a premier provider of vehicle registration data.



How do Vehicle-Registration Reports work?

You'll access vehicle registration data instantly using any of these search criteria:

  • Vehicle identification number (VIN)
  • License plate number and state
  • Surname and address

Information you’ll receive

Search results may vary depending on the search criteria you use and the state where the owner registered the vehicle.

However, most users will receive information on:

  • The vehicle's year, make, model, body style, and VIN
  • The name and complete address of the individual who registered the vehicle
  • The name of a cosigner or second owner, if applicable
  • The expiration date of the registration
  • The plate type, such as regular, vanity, dealer, or commercial
  • The name of the leasing company, if applicable
  • Whether the vehicle has a "branded" title, indicating an unusual condition in the vehicle's history (junked, salvaged, flooded, or the like)
