In case you don’t know, there is such thing as VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), a 17-digit code only your vehicle has. The VIN contains the vehicle’s year and model specific information that is important for insurance companies, auto dealers and law enforcement. 

A VIN is only necessary if your vehicle is registered in a different state; if your vehicle is homemade, rebuilt, or reconstructed; is a kit car; or if your vehicle requires a bond. 

To have a VIN inspection, you can contact your local law enforcement officials. In Casper, Wyoming, you won’t need to have an appointment to have your VIN inspected, as inspections can be carried out during normal business hours. 

Likewise, if you need to register your vehicle in Wyoming but your vehicle is out of the state, you can ask a local enforcement officer in your jurisdiction to conduct the VIN inspection. This is the same case as Nebraska, only that you would have to contact your local county vehicle officer. VIN inspection fee costs around $10 for both Nebraska and Wyoming.
