Your car registration number is the number that identifies your specific vehicle and shows that you own and have it properly registered in your state. This car registration number is the same as your license plate number. If your car is not in your immediate possession and you need to determine your car registration number for car insurance or permit applications, it can be found on your car registration certificate.
Look for your car registration certificate. This is the document that a state representative gave you when you received your license plates. It is a good idea to make several copies of this document, keeping one in your car’s glove compartment and one in your home office.
Locate where your car registration document says “License Plate Number” or “Registration Number”. This information is in the upper left corner of your vehicle registration.
Scan through the series of numbers and letters corresponding to your license plate or registration number. This is the official number associated with your car in your state.
Write the registration number on your insurance or auto permit applications.
