VIN Inspections

vinVehicle Identification Number (VIN) inspections are required when you register a used vehicle or trailer in Wyoming that was purchased outside of the state of Wyoming. When a new vehicle is purchased from another state you may be required to obtain a VIN inspection if the dealer did not complete the inspection prior to sale.  Vehicles that can be driven and meet legal requirements can be inspected Monday through Friday 8 am to 5 pm at the Sheriff’s Office Administration Building, 180 S King Street in Jackson.

The inspector will need the following:
Ability to see the odometer on motorized vehicles and
Documentation that includes the VIN, such as a title or bill of sale

Once the VIN inspection is complete you will be provided a document stating the VIN is clear. You will need to take this document to the Teton County Clerks Office for registration of the vehicle.

There is a $10 fee for the VIN inspection and may either be collected by the Sheriff’s Office or Teton County Treasurer’s Office in pursuant to W.S 18-3-402. The Sheriff’s Office can only accept cash for payment.

If you are unable to drive the vehicle you can schedule a VIN check at the vehicles location, provided it is in Teton County, by calling the Communications Center at 307.733.2331.

Stop by the administration desk for an application for a state assigned VIN number if you have a homemade trailer or vehicle that you need to assign a VIN number to.
