There is a $5 fee to obtain a Vehicle Identification (VIN) Check. Payment may be made in the form of cash, money order, Visa or Master Card. You may either bring the vehicle to the Police station at 1075 W Main Street or call 317-839-8700 for an officer to come to your location. You should have the Physical Inspection of a Vehicle or Watercraft Form required by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) ready to be completed by the officer.
If you come to the station during regular business hours (Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.) you will pay the $5 fee (cash, money order, Visa or Master Card) before your VIN check is performed.
If you call for an officer to come to your location or bring the vehicle to the station after business hours the officer will complete the form required by the BMV and bring it to the Records Department. You will then be required to come to the station the following business day to pay the $5 fee (cash, money order, Visa or Master Card) and collect your completed paperwork.
The Plainfield Police Department suspended inspections of Rebuilt SALVAGE Motor Vehicles effective May 3, 2019, until further notice. You may contact the Indianapolis State Police District at 317-899-8577 for further information.
