All cars have a visible VIN but if they have been stolen and given cloned plates the number will have been removed.

But your V5C registration document will have the VIN on (I think) the 2nd page.

VINs are usually visible from the outside at the bottom edge of the windscreen on passenger side. There is sometimes a little window in the black windscreen surround. Also as Back again noted, it is recorded on teh V5 - and on the sales reciept.

Kia Rio VIN plate can be found on the offside of the bulkhead on a silver metal plate held by two black rivets. The number is embossed and displays no security marks. Kia Rio chassis number is stamped into the chassis underneath the drivers offside seat.

Most cars now have them on the bottom edge of the dash. Daughters previous Picanto did 16 plate.
