California License Plate Lookup
If you need to find the registered owner of a California vehicle via a license plate lookup, you’ve come to the right place. There are many unscrupulous websites that will try to offer you a free license plate or VIN search, but those sites do not have access to real up-to-date records because vehicle registration information is not available to the general public, and is never free. California DMV records may only be accessed by approved, authorized authorities, like government officials, insurance companies or law enforcement personnel or licensed investigators, like Docusearch. If you order a so-called free license plate lookup online, you are receiving records that are outdated and useless.
As licensed private investigators, Docusearch has access to current vehicle owner information in the California State computer. If you have a valid reason for needing to find the owner of a vehicle, like you need to find a person for a court case, then we can help you.
You will be required to select a DPPA Permissible Purpose when placing your order.
Note: We cannot search temporary license plates, commercial vehicles, recreational vehicles, trailers or handicapped plates .

Note: This is a sample of a typical returned search, however actual results may vary.
- Hand-searched by experienced and licensed investigators and returned the same business day. (Normally within hours)
- We return the current owners name and vehicle details for the submitted license plate (or VIN) obtained directly from the State DMV authority.
- No subscription or sign-up fee. Simply pay a one-time $39 per license plate with no future commitment.
- Sure, it may be instant, but what good is it if results are not current? Read the small print. They admit that there is no guarantee of accuracy.
- If any results are returned, they will likely be for a previous owner of the license plate. This is because current license plate data is never sold to data brokers.
- Others require you to pay a monthly subscription fee to access their stale database
