Washington State Patrol Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Inspection

The Washington State Patrol (WSP) performs physical inspections on vehicles that have been rebuilt after being destroyed or declared a total loss by an insurance company. They also will perform physical inspections as required on vehicles reported stolen, homemade vehicles, other vehicles without a proper Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), or other special cases.

Step 1: Prior to scheduling a WSP VIN Inspection, you will need to acquire a WSP Inspection Request Form from a local vehicle license agent or subagent office.

Step 2: Schedule an appointment with the WSP on their website.

Step 3: Two-day transit permits are available for inspection of unlicensed vehicles. The fee is $5.00.
