The Alpha•Dot system is, by intent, covert and difficult to find. However, the adhesive used to secure the microdots in place does have a UV component, making them show-up more easily with a black or UV light source.
Once located, it is often easier to remove a dot before reading. View the microdot against a white background with a magnification of at least 30X (viewers are available FREE to the police, on request) and you will see the unique PIN number, pre-fixed with a country code (U.K.) followed by 8 or 9 numeric digits.
Contact us with this PIN and we will then search the database for registered owner details.
Note: If you have found an Alpha•Dot on a vehicle component, but you suspect the vehicle may have been ringed, keep looking elsewhere since other components might have microdots with an alternate VRM recorded.
