Car Rebuilding and Title Rules for Idaho

By Mike Richards Updated: 05/22/2019 Posted: 10/28/2015

In Idaho it is possible for a salvage vehicle to be considered reconstructed or repaired, after repairs have been made.

Rebuilding the Vehicle

You will want to make sure that you choose a quality rebuilder, or that you can complete the repairs on your own. Once you have completed the repairs, you will then be able to surrender the salvage certificate and then apply for an Idaho Rebuilt Title through the local DMV office.

You will need to complete a Salvage Vehicle Statement, and pay $14 for the title fee. Once you turn in all of the paperwork, they will provide you with the new title so you can register the vehicle and get it back on the road.

What Info Does the Salvage Vehicle Statement Require?

The Salvage Vehicle Statement you turn in requires information about the vehicle and the rebuilding process. You need to include the vehicle’s VIN, along with the year, make, and model. Also, it requires your full name, driver’s license number, address, salvage declaration date, whether the airbags were deployed or not, and the event that caused the vehicle to be certified as salvage.

You also need to describe the work that has been done on the vehicle to restore it to the same operating condition as it was before the event that caused it to be salvaged. The statement is also to certify that you meet the requirements of the law in Idaho.

As always, be sure to read the form and fill it out accurately. After completing the form and paying the fees, you can receive your new title. Then you can register the vehicle and get the car on the road, provided that you have insurance coverage.
