When do I need a VIN inspection and how do I get one?

People often need a Vehicle Identification Number for out-of-state titles, changing body types (example: bus to a flat bed trailer), or proof of no VIN.

To obtain a VIN inspection:

  1. Pay $20.00 at City Hall, which is located in Suite 112 of the Touber Building (448 E. 1st Street, Salida).
  2. DO NOT FILL OUT FORM THAT IS GIVEN TO YOU
  3. Call Police Department to schedule VIN 539-6880, let the police department know if you will drive vehicle to department or if car is at your home.
  4. A Police Officer will either meet you at your house (if within the City limits) OR at Salida Police Department (Suite 274 of the Touber Building).
