Salvage and Nonrepairable Vehicles: Repaired/Rebuilt Vehicle Examinations
Before DMV issues a vehicle title for a repaired or rebuilt salvage vehicle, a DMV special agent must conduct an anti-theft examination. In order for an examination to be scheduled, the requestor must contact the appropriate DMV Investigative Services District Office to schedule a examination. When the examination is completed, the requestor must submit the following to DMV:
Salvage Certificate Original IS 22A Form
Original IS 22B Form (Report of Examination of Repaired or Rebuilt Salvage Vehicle) indicating approved examination and whether or not branding is required. This form is completed by the DMV special agent who conducts the exam. $25.00 Anti-Theft Examination Fee
$10.00 Substitute title fee
The percentage of damage listed on the original salvage record will determine if there is to be a brand noted on the new title.
If the vehicle record indicated the damage as 75 percent or less, DMV will issue a certificate of title with no brand. There is no requirement for additional notification to a new purchaser.
If the vehicle record indicated the damage to be between as 76 percent to 90 percent, DMV will issue a certificate of title with the brand "SALVAGE REBUILT" printed on it. This brand is permanent and will be carried forward for each title issued for the life of the vehicle.
Note: Each new purchaser must receive the title and a notification form (VSA59) REBUILT SALVAGE VEHICLE DISCLOSURE STATEMENT."
