What makes our ME license plate lookup so helpful?

The challenges of vehicle ownership are real, whether you’re buying, selling or keeping your ride. But when you use our State of Maine license plate lookup, you could access critical data to keep you in the driver’s seat of your vehicle ownership journey.

Say you’re trying to sell your Bangor daily driver, but you’re not sure where to set the price. We can help you try to verify your vehicle’s value so you can set a reasonable asking price. That means you can nab a quick sale and pocket some cash.

Are you in the market to buy a new Maine vehicle? Our license plate lookup can be especially beneficial for you by revealing vehicles impacted by Maine’s lemon laws. Our reports may include other relevant info, like available open recalls, salvaged titles, liens—even damage from Maine’s famously dicey winter weather. Issues like these can really put a dent in a potential vehicle’s value.

For those trying to decide between more than one vehicle, we can help you compare them side by side!

From there, you can find vehicle specs and factory configurations, try out our VIN decoder or look up a VIN!

Curious what your vehicle is worth? We can help!

Do you need front and rear plates in Maine?

Yes, you need front and rear license plates on your Maine vehicle. Dual license plates make it easier to identify a Maine vehicle, whether for law enforcement or for civilians in instances of insurance liability issues. 

Dual license plates also help you identify Maine vehicles you might want to learn more about!

Seeing a vehicle without a front license plate? It’s likely a visitor from out of town. But if you’re interested in learning more about the vehicle, we can still help you out. We’re able to run license plate searches for any state in the U.S., from nearby states like New York, New Jersey, and the rest of New England in Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Connecticut!
