Tire Identification Number (DOT)

Scan capability overview

Example Tire Identification Number (DOT)

The Tire Identification Number (TIN) Scanner supports 2 different modes: Universal TIN (default) and TIN/DOT.

Universal TIN

  • This is the default.

  • Scans TINs starting with or without DOT

  • Allowed symbols are A-Z and 0-9.

  • The length must be between 6 and 17 characters

  • In the SDKs, the scan mode is: UNIVERSAL


  • Scans TINs that start with a DOT

  • Allowed symbols are A, B, C, D, E, F, H, J, K, L, M, N, P, R, T, U, V, W, X, Y, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 0.

  • The length must be between 10 and 16 characters (incl. DOT).

  • The first three letters have to be DOT

  • In the SDKs, the scan mode is: DOT

Valid for both modes
  • Only tires produced after the year 2000 are scannable. The production date can be checked by the last four digits of the TIN (the first two digits determine the week number, the second two digits the year).

  • The last 4 characters must be digits and have to represent a valid production date (WWYY).

Please select the scan mode that fits your use case. A scan mode with stronger restrictions can prevent potential false positives.

The TIN scanner provides automatic upside-down recognition.
