Every letter and number has a specific meaning about the ATV. The characters help to recognize details of the ATVs such as the manufacturer, location and year of manufacture, and much more. The letters I, i, O, o, Q, and q are never to be utilized to avoid confusion with numbers 1 and 0. A standard  VIN format is followed by all ATV manufacturers.

The next six characters from the fourth to the ninth position are known as Vehicle Descriptor Section (VDS). These characters represent the characteristics of the ATV which may include the model, body type, and so on. The ninth digit is a security check that verifies the previous characters as authorized by the manufacturer.
