What is a Rebuilt Title?

Although a salvaged car may not receive registration, or be safe to drive, it may qualify for a rebuilt title if repairs make it fit for driving conditions. Before it can go from salvage to rebuilt, it must pass a state 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.
