Factory 5 kit car forums have details on getting a VIN on a new kit car. It's DMV paper work and an inspection.

So what is the process of vin verification? Are they just checking to make sure the vehicle isn’t stolen? If the vin doesn’t come back anything is that bad?

Is it a kit car? All cars from big manufactures are required to have VINs. How did you end up with a a car with out a VIN, unless it's a kit car you built?

For VIN verification at the DMV you just gotta line up in the line where it says "inspection" and they check it all out. I'm sure if you don't have VIN's they'll make CHP check out the whole car. All cars are required to leave the factory with VIN's so if you have a car that doesn't have any I say that's a big red flag that at one point it was stolen then probably turned into a drag car?

It has a serial number but not a 17 digit vin, it’s a military vehicle

You may have to look further into that. Could possibly be only able to use off-road. If you have a title already from whomever you purchased it from I think it might be the same process I went thru to register my car here in CA.
