Scooters, like most other vehicles, contain a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). The VIN is like a birth certificate. Each scooter is given a number containing information about when and where it was made, who it belongs to and any information about repairs or accidents. Your local Department of Motor Vehicles can look up your VIN and provide you with any information about the scooter. In many cases, people who are looking up the VIN are interested in buying the scooter.
