VIN Inspection

Do I need to get a VIN Inspection?

Wyoming State Statute, Title 31 31-2-103(a)(vi) requires any vehicle, trailer, or watercraft that:
  • is registered or titled in another state; or
  • is a homemade vehicle, trailer, or watercraft; or
  • has been rebuilt or reconstructed; or
  • has been assembled from a kit; or
  • any vehicle for which a bond is required.
Must have a Wyoming law enforcement officer inspect the vehicle or trailer to ensure that the Vehicle Identification Number is displayed correctly on the vehicle.
