A car’s number plate is its foremost form of identification, legal status, and more. There are dedicated website databases dedicated to keeping track of cars by their numbers. It can tell you such information as the car’s owner, registration, and more. These websites may also charge a service fee for their use. 

Another method of checking or tracking a car is by its VIN (vehicle identification number). This can also tell you of any recent traffic violations or accidents the vehicle has been involved in. The fees associated with checking a VIN are less than those of checking a car’s number plate. 

If your car is missing or stolen, you should report it to the police. At the same time, you can be insured with a comprehensive cheap car insurance policy from Insurance Navy. Have your car protected when it comes to theft and vandalism at affordable rates today.
