In Mississippi MS, it is possible for those who own vehicles that have salvage titles to rebuild the vehicles to get them back on the road, but they need to follow the proper procedure including DMV inspection to replace the title. Below you can read all about Mississippi title rules.

What Is the Procedure in Mississippi?

After rebuilding the vehicle, it needs to be presented to the Mississippi Department of Public Safety for an inspection. At the time of the inspection, the owner needs to provide the Mississippi title Application for the Inspection of Salvage Vehicle, along with the salvage title, notarized bills of sale for all the major parts used in the reconstruction of the vehicle, as well as invoices for the minor parts used in the reconstruction process.

The bills of sale and invoices will need to include the name, address, and phone number of the person who sold or otherwise provided the parts. They also need to include the make, model, year, and vehicle identification number of the vehicle from which they came.

The parts will also need to be described in the Tax Commission form (78-021), which is to be in the inspection application.

The rebuilder also needs to include at least four color photographs of the vehicle.

According to Mississippi law, they need to include four different angles that include “all four different angles looking from a fender on a line diagonally to the fender on the opposite side taken from a distance of not more than six feet from the vehicle, and that show the back or front, and side of the vehicle from each angle.”

After passing the inspection, you will receive a Completion of Vehicle Inspection form (78-022). The owner will then surrender all of the documentation with the application of title. And will be able to receive (transfer) a rebuilt title.

They will also need to have proof of insurance to get the title and to drive it on the road. Don’t forget your driver’s license!
