Rebuilt Title


What is a Rebuilt Title?

Although a salvaged vehicle may not receive registration, or be able to drive, it may qualify for a rebuilt title if repairs make it fit for driving conditions. Before it can hold the title of a rebuilt car, it must pass an inspection at an inspection facility. Most importantly, the facility must be approved by the state. But, the process doesn’t end there. 

Before an inspection can happen at a salvage station, all cars must go to the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) Safety Testing Lane. After that, the car must pass a safety test. Moreover, both processes require the application of inspection and retitling fees.

A car with a rebuilt title has limited insurance coverage options. Some companies will only offer liability insurance for these cars.
