Register a Salvaged Vehicle in Illinois

Whenever a motor vehicle has suffered damage by accident, flood or in any way that would cause the cost to be more to repair than the vehicle’s market value, it is generally declared salvage. It will be issued a salvage certificate of title and removed from the road―a salvage vehicle cannot be registered. However, If a licensed automobile re-builder performs all of the necessary repairs on a salvage vehicle that would bring it back to road-worthiness, then the “salvage” branding that has been placed upon the title may be changed to “rebuilt.” The vehicle may then be registered and used again.There will be steps that must be taken before a “rebuilt” title can be re-titled.
