VIN Checks

UPDATE ON VIN CHECKS: Beginning on September 1, 2021, A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) check is required before registering a vehicle if the title is from another state or the vehicle was registered in another state, and the model year of the vehicle is 2001 or newer.

Applicants should bring the original title, or a copy of the title if there is a lien on the vehicle, along with the vehicle to a municipal police department for this service. This service is provided to Narragansett residents only.
