    Get the information together. You need to have complete plate number along with the state. You will not be able to locate the person with partial information or car description.

  2. 2

    Contact your state’s department of motor vehicles, abbreviated as DMV. If the number plate’s state is different from yours, contact the DMV of that state government (see Resources for its website). Each state’s laws and procedures are different.

  3. 3

    Submit a request application for obtaining public records. You can find this application at state offices, or even through your state government’s website. The procedure of obtaining information and waiting time varies from state to state.
