New registration

If you have not previously registered your details with Maurice Blackburn or Bannister Law, then please enter the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) for your vehicle below and click to check that it is a vehicle affected by the diesel emissions issue.

VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)

The VIN is a unique code made up of 17 letters and numbers, which identifies your vehicle. Please ensure that you correctly enter the VIN, including checking that:

  • The number “0” is not mistyped as the letter “O” (or vice versa)
  • The number “1” is not mistyped as the letter “l” (or vice versa)
  • The number “2” is not mistyped as the letter “Z” (or vice versa)
  • Any sequence of the letters “W” and “V” (for example “WVW”) is typed correctly

You can usually find the VIN on a plate or sticker under the bonnet, near the engine bay, or inside the passenger side door on the “B” pillar of your vehicle. It may also be recorded in the certificates of registration, insurance papers, service log book, or other documentation for your vehicle.
