Frequently Asked Questions
| 1) What Is A Salvage Vehicle? |
A Salvage Vehicle is a vehicle to be titled and registered that had been stolen, wrecked, destroyed by water or otherwise damaged to the extent that the insurance company considered it to be uneconomical to repair and was therefore issued a certificate of title branded/marked as Salvage.
| 2) What Is A Restored Salvage Vehicle? |
Restored salvage is a vehicle that was previously issued a certificate of title branded as Salvage, but has now been repaired/restored, then inspected for roadworthiness and issued a title branded as Restored Salvage.
| 3) What Does It Take To Pass An Inspection? |
All equipment to meet the requirements of the road must be in good condition and in good working order.
| 4) What Documents Are Needed For An Inspection? |

- Receipts or invoices for all component parts that have been repaired or replaced.
| 5) Why Is A Level III Inspection Needed? |
To help reduce auto theft, restored salvage vehicles require the more comprehensive Level III inspection that is conducted by specially certified officers. Level III is necessary to verify all major component parts which include front end assembly, engine, transmission, as well as rear end assembly for trucks and truck-type vehicles.
| 6) Should I Let The Buyer Know?
Arizona law requires that any person who sells a vehicle for which a salvage title has been issued, must disclose to the buyer, before the completion of the sale, that it is a salvage vehicle.
| 7) What Are The Fees?
The cost of the inspection depends on the level of detail required:
Level II $20.00
