how to find out what car someone drives

So how to find out what car someone drives. If someone hit you and ran away lets see how you can find them. A car that’s been around for weeks or even months just passed by. This causes a lot of problems as the car looks bad inside and out, breaks down, and most importantly takes up precious parking spaces. Or you witnessed an accident. Or someone applying to buy a used car but would like to know more about the current owner.

How to find out what car someone drives

As mentioned above, if you are in any of the above situations that prompts you to investigate a car owner, you are either legal or illegal. The illegal method is usually to break into the front cabin of the car and find any documents showing the owner’s contact details. Instead, the following legal ways will definitely help you better without causing you any trouble.

Utilize online databases

In the modern world, you can find the owner of any car if you get its VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) from any free or paid database. In this case, your first priority is to determine the VIN. Since you don’t know the car and don’t have access to its files, you’ll have to find the number from outside. So check out these places:

Mostly in front of the engine and under to the hood

  • Driver’s side interior instrument panel.
  • Driver’s door pillar (inside).
  • Front of frame (older car).
  • Once you have a VIN, visit any website to verify the number to access owner data.

Talk to the authorities

Contacting the authorities is the best and most efficient way to get the necessary details and car owners. However, one thing to note here is that you cannot apply to any random institution or department. Your circumstances will allow you to decide which agency to contact.

Go to the source

If talking to the authorities doesn’t help, or if you feel the time has passed, it’s best to go to the nearest police station. Also, if you are the victim or witness of a hit-and-run accident, or if a stranger has parked a suspicious car nearby, etc., it is even more important to seek help from the police. Also, in the above cases, it is best not to seek out the owner yourself. Go to the nearest police station and dictate all the data you have, such as the car’s license plate, colour, model, VIN, etc. Or anything you can find in a car environment.

Car Clubs near you

Auto clubs are ubiquitous these days, offering many benefits to car owners who want to join. If you know those car clubs in your area, who knows who you were looking for and now you can be a member of them. Likewise, you will need all other information about the car, such as licence plate, colour, model, VIN, etc. It is important to note here that you are not limiting your search to regional clubs. Try to contact as many car clubs as possible, including those outside your area. 

What if the car is scrapped?

The easiest way to check if the car you want to buy has been scrapped is to buy an HPI car inspection online, which includes a scrapped vehicle inspection. Using data from the DVLA, it checks your history to see if it has ever been recorded as scrap.
