Enter any additional details regarding the car (if the website prompts you for further information) in order to find the best possible search results. Some websites allow reverse searches if you are unaware of the license plate number. These searches require information such as the person’s name and address in order to find information on their vehicle. These are also available for free online. Depending on the license plate look-up service you choose to use, enter all of the details you have handy in order to receive the most accurate results. Press “Search” to allow the website to run its database, matching any entries with your search preferences. The results will show license plate information as well as any contact information the website generates for the public.
