Online Lookup for a New York License Plate #
So you have the license plate number or VIN of a vehicle with New York plates and you want to find the vehicle’s registered owner. The good news is that you can order a license plate search online and receive current results in very little time. The bad news is that there are plenty of scam websites out there that make nice sounding promises, but deliver nothing but headaches.
Current vehicle owner information is not available from the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles instantly, nor is it available for free. If you come across a site promising instant results or a free search, it’s too good to be true. It’s a scam.
Usually, sites likes that do one of two things. They either send you old out-of-date information that have been purchased from a database wholesaler or they try to convince you to pay for a subscription fee for “unlimited searches”. Once you’ve paid the subscription fee, all you get are links to other sites requiring you to pay more. These scam websites do not offer real New York license plate searches.
How To Find NY Vehicle Owner Information
If you need to find New York vehicle ownership information, place your online license plate # or VIN search with a licensed private investigator. Results are guaranteed to be current because selected licensed private investigators (like Docusearch) are computer-connected to the current New York DMV records.
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 or trailers.

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, address, 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
