How to Lookup Any Washington D.C. License Plate Number

1. Access license plate information via privately run vehicle record websites, that organize and index vehicle records so they’re easy to access with a simple plate or VIN search. These databases are run by private companies, not State or Federal government organizations. These resources are easy to use and very accessible.

2. Another option is to request the information from the state. For the state of Washington D.C. however, you’ll only be able to access information about your own vehicle through the state, not other people’s vehicles.

3. The last option is to hire a private eye to find the vehicle records you’re looking for. They’re quite a bit more expensive but worth the money if you can’t find what you’re looking for elsewhere.
