The national Inspection VIN Accuracy measure results show the number of States within each rating. A State’s VIN accuracy rating is based on the percentage of the State’s evaluated inspection records that have a valid VIN for the first vehicle unit. These inspections were first uploaded between 09/01/2017 and 08/31/2018. Learn how this rating is calculated.
info
Why this matters

Accurate VINs help FMCSA associate inspections to the right vehicle, which can help prioritize carriers or drivers for interventions that pose the greatest safety risk.
