You just need a car’s vehicle identification number – the VIN is a 17-character code that you can find on the driver’s doorjamb and on the base of the driver’s side of the dashboard, visible through the windshield from outside of the car. (If you’re buying a car, the seller can provide the VIN, though you’ll probably want to check it again yourself when you see the car in person.)
