How do I perform a search?
First log in to your account. You will be redirected to the "Search" page. If you have multiple plates or VINs to search, enter them in the larger boxes, separated by spaces, commas or new lines. Be careful not to put spaces inside individual plates. For example, instead of entering "ABC 123", you would enter "ABC123".
What happens if my search does not produce a match?
If your search does not produce an immediate match, we will store it in our database and notify you when we have a location for any of your stored searches. We are collecting thousands of plates every hour, so there is a strong likelihood that if your vehicle is in our coverage area we will encounter it.
What kind of success rate can I expect?
Statistical analysis over the millions of plates we've collected suggests that 20% of your searches will return an immediate match, while another 20%-40% of your searches will produce a match within 45 days. Some factors may affect the results for individual searches.
Can I view a summary of all my searches?
