Using vinlib

In python code you can check if the vin is valid:

This will return true or false depending if the vin number is correct or not.

In python code you can decode vin’s year:

import vinlib
print vinlib.Vin('1ZVIHaveAVinNumber17').year

Additional Examples:

import vinlib
#get year from a vin
print vinlib.Vin('1ZVIHaveAVinNumber17').year
#check if vin is valid.
print vinlib.Vin('1ZVIHaveAVinNumber17').check
