From knowing a vehicle’s background to mitigating ownership costs of your current vehicle, a Bumper license plate search should be your first move.

Plus, we’re always adding automotive-related features and perks to our subscription to help you get the most out of your vehicle.

Performing a license plate lookup in Minnesota for a used vehicle may also be helpful because it can return information on vehicles impacted by lemon laws and title issues due to Minnesota’s extreme weather that can negatively impact a vehicle’s value, including flooding, tornadoes, hail damage and more.

Aside from our detailed vehicle history reports, we can also help you compare vehicles side by side and even calculate your vehicle’s depreciation. Whether you’re buying or selling, if you want to get the best deal for your ride in Minnesota, start with Bumper.

Why use Bumper’s Minnesota license plate search?

From Ortonville to Minneapolis and even to Duluth, our Minnesota license plate lookup can help you with car buying, selling and ownership in the Gopher State.

At Bumper, we aggregate our data in a neatly organized online dashboard, which is also available on iOS and Google mobile apps, and in an easy-to-download PDF form.

Rather than slogging through various databases, paying for a lot of the exact same information from a more expensive competitor or getting wrapped up in bureaucratic red tape with your local government’s public record office, you can subscribe to Bumper, where you can get robust vehicle reports right at your fingertips.

Do you need front and rear plates in Minnesota?

Yes you need front and rear license plates in Minnesota, although there may be some exceptions for motorcycles and classic cars.

Most states require dual license plates because it makes it easier for law enforcement and motorists to identify other vehicles on the road, but we can also help you look up info about a vehicle from any neighboring state to Minnesota, including Iowa, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Illinois, Michigan, and more!

While license plates are easier to spot, if you already have a Minnesota car’s VIN, we can also help you do a VIN search!
