How to Lookup Any New Jersey License Plate Number

1. Private databases purchase, organize, and sell information to consumers. These databases are run by private companies, not State or Federal government organizations. This is the easiest option for consumers looking for information because it involves the least amount of work.

Our sponsors are an example of a private database that sells information. Simply start your search by typing a license plate number in the search field on the right.

2. Another option is to request the information from the state. For the state of New Jersey, the form you need is located here:

3. One more option is to hire a private investigator. This is the most expensive option, but it could prove useful.
