Complete TC 96-215, Affidavit of Motor Vehicle Assembled from Wrecked or Salvage Motor Vehicles.
Vehicle Information on this form is for the vehicle that is being rebuilt. This form must be notarized. 
Submit original Salvage Title. If the vehicle is from out of state and that state only has a registration requirement, the original registration form must be submitted. KYTC will NOT accept copies.
If the Kentucky title has been junked in Kentucky, by an individual (not an insurance company), a bill of sale and the seller section of TC96-182 must be completed and notarized. 
Submit a completed TC 96-182, Application for Kentucky Title/Registration. This form also needs to be notarized. KYTC will NOT accept copies. 
Submit all receipts for any parts purchased (Receipts must be original).
If parts were purchased from an individual, not a business, the seller must state their name, complete address, and phone number.
List what parts were acquired/purchased and note the vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle those parts were taken from.
If the seller can’t provide a VIN, then a notarized statement stating why the VIN can’t be provided is required. 
Submit an original descriptive, notarized labor statement explaining what parts were replaced and what parts were repaired.
This statement must be from the person who repaired the vehicle. 
If the vehicle has a license plate, regardless of the decal expiration date, remove it from the vehicle and submit the plate to your county clerk’s office. 
If the title has a lien recorded, a lien termination statement from the lienholder must be submitted to your county clerk so it can be released. 
For a rebuilt motorcycle, provide pencil tracings of the frame and motor numbers.
If a replacement motor was used, an effort should be made to obtain the frame number of the motorcycle that the replacement motor was taken from. 
If a vehicle is not damaged beyond 75% of its current value, a statement from the insurance company, on their letterhead, describing the damage to the vehicle must be submitted.
These statements are usually required for vehicles that sustained minor damage due to fire, flood, recovered from theft with minor damage, or hail damage.
If the vehicle is bought from a car auction, your original receipt from the auction must state the damage. We will accept this receipt instead of the insurance statement.  Applicants who supply their own parts need to provide original invoices from the businesses where the parts were purchased.
If the receipt shows several parts for various vehicles, the applicant must indicate the parts that were purchased for the vehicle on the rebuilt application.
The Rebuilt Section will return the original invoice after initialing the parts used. 
​For vehicles less than 10 years old, a separate Federal Odometer Disclosure Statement must be submitted if:
The odometer reading is not disclosed on the TC 96-182 Application for Kentucky Title/Registration or; the odometer reading is not on a properly completed title.

3. Kentucky Laws on Rebuilt Car Titles

Kentucky title laws are designed to protect the buyer and seller of a vehicle. When buying or selling a seriously damaged vehicle, full disclosure must be given in writing and the appropriate documentation must be signed by the buyer. This law applies to not only automobile dealers, but to individuals as well. A vehicle is considered salvage if the cost to repair damages are greater than its value. Kentucky title laws are designed to reflect the vehicle's status.

Branded Titles
Kentucky law requires that salvaged titles be ‘branded' with the words “rebuilt vehicle.” Automobile dealers are required to provide notice of the salvage status by supplying the purchaser with a notice via a previous owner sticker and salvage disclosure. The law is specific—the notice must be on paper of a different color than the stickers without branded status. The disclosure must be written in a different font (at least 10 points) than a non-salvage disclosure.

Speed Titles
Speed titles are obtained at your local county clerk's office and can be mailed to you the following business day. However, Kentucky law does not permit speed titles on rebuilt or salvaged titles.

Duplicate Titles
If you have lost or misplaced your salvage or rebuilt title, you can obtain a duplicate copy from your county clerk's office. The fee is $8 (as of August, 2010) and the title is usually mailed within the next business day.

Title Process and Rebuilding
If you are considering rebuilding an automobile that has been salvaged you will first need to obtain a form from the Kentucky Department of Motor Vehicles called the Affidavit of Motor Vehicle Assembled from Wrecked or Salvaged Motor Vehicles. You will need to keep all detailed receipts for notarized submission. If parts are purchased from individuals, you need to include the person's contact information along with a list of parts used and the units' vehicle identification number (VIN). After completion, you will need to complete an Application for Kentucky Certificate of Title/Registration. An inspection is then required. The new title will then be branded.

4. How to Obtain a Salvage Title/Rebuilt Title

TO OBTAIN A SALVAGE TITLE…

To apply for a salvage title, you are required to bring the following items to the Motor Vehicle Department:

Kentucky certificate or title

Current or expired license plate to the vehicle

A lien release if applicable (TC 96-187)

When purchasing a vehicle for the first time, 6% sales tax will be collected

Fee of $9.00 for basic salvage title and 4-6 weeks to process, or fee of $25.00 for speed title and 3-5 business days to process

Changing a title over to salvage status means the vehicle cannot be on the road until it has been sent through the rebuilt process.

5. Can I Buy or Get Insurance for Rebuild Salvage Title Cars in Kentucky?

Most salvage cars are cars that have suffered damage that insurance companies consider to not be worth repairing. In many cases, these vehicles are “totaled”, destined for the scrap heap. However, in many states – Kentucky included – car dealers or even individuals can buy a salvage car and restore it to a roadworthy condition.

It might not be an easy task, but it’s entirely possible, and that includes getting coverage salvage cars insurance in Kentucky. Here’s a brief overview of the entire restoration process and what is Kentucky title application.

Rebuilding a Salvage Car
When a car is declared salvage in Kentucky, this means that the title of the car actually changes to reflect its status as undrivable. A car with a “salvage title” cannot be registered or insured in the state of Kentucky until it goes through a rigorous inspection process after its restoration is complete.

Some states require you to go to a licensed rebuilder to have a salvage-title car repaired, but that’s not the case in Kentucky. Here, you can do all the work yourself. When you decide to buy a salvage car and restore it to good working condition, you’ll need to know that it may require a significant amount of work.

ReTitling a Salvage Car
There are several forms the owner of a restored salvage car will need to submit to get it ready for re-titling and re-registration.

If the car was even partially rebuilt from parts sourced from other salvage cars – such as those purchased from a salvage yard – as an owner you will have to have an Affidavit of Motor Vehicle Assembled From Wrecked or Salvaged Motor Vehicles filled out and notarized.

Additionally, a record of every replacement part you purchase for your car will have to be submitted with a notarized statement from the individual you purchased it from or with a receipt from the company it came from. This extends to any receipts for labor if you didn’t do the work yourself. Finally, you’ll have to have the vehicle inspected and fill out Kentucky title application for a new title or registration.

Fulfilling all these requirements, in addition to restoring the salvage car to a safe and drivable condition – will result in your title and registration application being approved. You then have 60 days to get the new title and registration. Once you do so, you’ll notice that your new title will have the word “rebuilt” branded on it. This rebuilt title will let subsequent owners know what kind of work went into the vehicle.

Getting Your Rebuilt Salvage Car Insured in Kentucky
Unfortunately, when your new title is branded as rebuilt, this also lets insurers know that your particular vehicle was a salvage car at one time. This can complicate things when it comes to getting insurance for your car in compare with new car.

Since you can’t legally drive the vehicle without at least minimal insurance, you can’t avoid applying for coverage. However, insurance companies don’t like providing coverage to rebuilt salvage cars, as the risk of additional mechanical problems or hidden faults are higher in these types of vehicles. According to most insurers, it’s just too risky to cover a rebuilt vehicle.

Still, you can manage to get insurance for a salvage car in Kentucky. One tactic to pursue is to only take out personal liability and property damage coverage, as this will avoid attempting to insure the vehicle against physical damage in the same way that comprehensive or collision coverage would. However, this can be problematic if your rebuilt vehicle represents a significant investment on your part. Physical damage coverage is often the best way to protect that investment.

It takes work on your part to find an insurer willing to offer you physical damage coverage on your rebuilt salvage car. You are likely to be turned down outright or offered very high price quotes. However, in many cases an insurer is willing to meet a rebuilt salvage car owner halfway.

If you’re willing to subject your vehicle to yet another inspection by a car insurance agent, an insurer that would have otherwise been reticent to offer you physical damage coverage may change its mind, or may lower its price quote to something approaching a more reasonable figure.

This means that it is possible to secure full insurance coverage for a rebuilt salvage car in Kentucky. It just requires some work on the part of an owner. However, anyone who has successfully navigated the treacherous bureaucratic waters of the state’s motor vehicle laws in re-titling and re-registering a salvage car should be more than ready for the challenge of allaying the fears of a few insurance underwriters.

8. How to Clear a Salvaged Title in Kentucky

To clear a salvaged vehicle title in Kentucky, follow the Kentucky Revised Statutes. Get the vehicle road-ready, have it evaluated by a certified vehicle inspector and fill out the proper paperwork. Take the paperwork to your county clerk's office or the Department of Transportation's Division of Motor Vehicles in Frankfort and submit an application for a new title.

Paperwork
You'll need two forms to clear a salvaged title and obtain a new one. The TC96-215 is for previously salvaged vehicles, while the TC96-182 form is the standard application for new registration. Both forms can be obtained at one of Kentucky's county clerk offices, or from the Department of Transportation in Frankfort.

Attesting to Repair Work
Provide a notarized statement from the person who worked on the vehicle and original receipts for purchased parts along with the application for title. This statement needs to include a description of the work done and any parts repaired and replaced. If used parts were purchased from an individual, this seller will need to complete a written statement providing contact information and describing the parts sold.

Vehicle Inspection
A certified vehicle inspector must approve the vehicle before the owner can apply for a new title. Per Kentucky statutes, county sheriffs' offices across the state offer inspections. It costs $5 if you take the vehicle to them. If they must come to you, an additional $10 charge is added. The certified inspector will fill out the inspection section of the TC96-182 form, the application for registration and title.

Submitting Documents
A notary public must attest to the information and owner's signature on the forms. This can be completed when submitting the application, if necessary. Both the TC96-182 and TC96-215 can be taken to the local county clerk or to the DMV's One-Stop Shop, Rebuilt Section in Frankfort. The office is located in the Transportation Cabinet Office Building on Mero Street. Questions prior to submitting the application can be directed to 502-564-1257.

Post-app Procedures
After filing the paperwork, the vehicle owner has 60 days to obtain a new title and license tag for the vehicle. If the deadline is not met, the application process must be repeated. Kentucky laws require that after a salvage title is cleared, the vehicle must have a metal plate attached to the inside opening of the driver's side door stating that the vehicle was rebuilt.

Knowledgebase

What is a rebuilt title (what does a rebuilt title mean)?

A rebuilt title is also called a reconstructed title. There are two types of rebuilt titles. A legal salvage title is usually issued because the vehicle has suffered severe damage and needs to be rebuilt. A legal salvage title is necessary to legally sell the vehicle. A non-legal salvage title is issued when the damage isn't severe enough to warrant a legal salvage title, but the owner determines that repairing the vehicle is too costly. A non-legal salvage title is often issued with a brand. The "brand" means the vehicle is only good for parts.

What is a salvage title (what does a rebuilt title mean)?

Salvage titles are assigned to vehicles that have been deemed unrepairable and uninsurable, usually because of the damage they have sustained. The title assigned to a salvage vehicle usually has a letter and an alphanumeric code. However, if a vehicle has been damaged and repaired and the damage has been deemed minor, the original title holder can request a replacement title without a salvage code!

A salvage title is what you get when you buy a car that has been involved in an accident. Salvage titles are fairly cheap to get and the car probably isn't in the best condition, but they could be good to get if you're on a budget. There are certain states that require you to get a vehicle inspected after it has been repaired. For the most part, the car will make it through this inspection because most people don't know how to spot the damage done to it after an accident.

After a vehicle sold at auction, a dealership may not have the time to inspect every vehicle properly. They will sell the vehicles as is, even if there is a salvage title. That is because some vehicles will not have any issues that affect the safety of the driver or the passengers. In fact, many vehicles will still be drivable after an accident. Therefore, a salvage title is a warning sign for a potential buyer. However, it is not a guarantee that the vehicle will not function as intended. That is why a buyer needs to perform a thorough inspection on a vehicle with a salvage title.

What is a branded title (what does a branded title mean)?

A branded title is a classification on a vehicle's title that states the vehicle was once declared a total loss or comes with some other major problem. Cars with branded titles have been repaired or rebuilt and sold. A branded title can mean the car was damaged in a flood, its odometer was rolled back, or it was involved in a major accident. Purchasing a car with a branded title entails risks. These risks may include issues with the car's safety, performance, and even its history. However, some cars with branded titles are still great buys. Before you buy a car with a branded title, you should examine the title thoroughly and test the car after you've purchased it.

Rebuilt title vs. salvage title vs. branded title

It's important to understand the difference between a rebuilt title and a salvage title. A rebuilt title means that a mechanic took a damaged title and repaired it. If a mechanic can't repair a title he will have to issue a salvage title. A salvage title means that a car had major damage in a crash. If a car has a salvage title it will have a rebuilt title with a branded title. A branded title means that the car had major damage in a crash, but the mechanic was able to repair it. Salvage titles are less desirable to buyers. If a car has a salvage title the vehicle will lose a lot of its value. In that case, it might not be worth repairing it.

Is a rebuilt title bad?

Although a rebuilt title may seem like a bad deal, you can make a rebuilt title car work for you. To do this, first you need to learn all you can about the car before you buy. You should be able to see it and drive it and check everything that the car and seller say about it. And if it has a rebuilt title, you can read the report written by the insurance company and find out exactly why the car was totaled. This way you can avoid buying a rebuilt title car that will quickly break down and be more than you can handle.

As long as it was repaired and inspected properly by a reputable mechanic, a rebuilt title car is a perfectly good vehicle to consider buying.

Before you consider buying a car with a rebuilt title

If you are looking to purchase a rebuilt car, you should consider several factors beforehand. First, are the quality of the work done on the car. If you are looking to purchase a car that has been rebuilt, you should ask for proof that it has been inspected. You should also ask for a record of the repairs that have been done to the car. This information could save you a lot of headache down the line.

Salvage title cars are not always in bad shape, sometimes they are rebuilt to the manufacturer's specifications. And if you are willing to do some of the maintenance that comes with any used car, you can get a great deal!

People who are looking to sell their used cars or buy cheap cars will often check out rebuilt title car auctions. These auctions are exactly what they sound like, places where cars that have been salvaged after an accident are sold to the public. Of course, not all of these cars are in bad shape. Some of them are practically brand new! Because the sellers want to turn a profit, they can be quite willing to negotiate. You can find some great deals in rebuilt title car auctions.

How to determine the value of the rebuilt title car?

It's important for individuals who are looking to buy a new and used vehicle to know how a rebuilt title affects the value of a vehicle and what the benefits and setbacks are of having a rebuilt title before buying a vehicle.

The Kelley Blue Book will tell you exactly what a car is worth in a number of different conditions. Here's a step by step process on how to use a Kelley Blue Book: First, you need to know the year, make, model, and mileage of the vehicle. Next, find the vehicle in the book. This will tell you how much the vehicle is worth when in perfect condition. After, subtract the amount of miles the car has from the original mileage the car had when it was purchased. You can also compare prices and see what other people are paying for rebuilt titles.

A rebuilt title car value calculator is a great tool for anyone who is in the market for rebuilt title cars for sale. While all cars on the market have a value, not all of these values are created equally. Don't just go on the word of the salesman. Do your due diligence and check the value. The value of a car is calculated by its mileage and the year it was built. A rebuilt title car value calculator can assist you in understanding the value of the automobile. The condition of the engine, its interior and exterior, and its mileage are all used to calculate its market value.

What to look for when you shopping for a car with a rebuilt title

If you want a good deal on a car, a rebuilt title might be a good thing to look for. Here are a few reasons to get a rebuilt title. They're not always a bad thing! They're usually priced at a discount because of some minor damage or some other minor issue, but nothing that affects the driving performance of the car. Sometimes a rebuilt title is a good way to get a high-end luxury car like Bentley, Audi R8 and BMW M4, without paying a high-end luxury car price. In rare cases, a car's title will be rebuilt if it was totaled in an accident. But most of the time, a car's title will be rebuilt if it was in an accident and the owners insurance company paid out for a total loss. If you want a good deal on a car and you don't mind taking a chance on a car with a little bit of a history, you might want to consider a rebuilt title.

There are different kinds of rebuilt car reports that will tell you the history of the car. The VIN report will tell you if the car has been in a major accident and what caused it. The vehicle accident report will tell you if the vehicle has been in a minor accident (or no accident but only salvaged because of theft). If you want to buy a rebuilt title car, you'll need to know all of the information on the different reports and how it will affect your new vehicle.

Some people wonder if they should buy a car that has a rebuilt title. The short answer is that you should always buy a rebuilt title car with many questions. Even if you find a car with a clean title, you'll still want to take a look at the car before you buy. Buying a car with a rebuilt title is much better than buying a car with a clean title and it's a good way to save money. It's important to always ask the seller as many questions as possible before you decide to buy. The best thing you can do is to take a look at the car yourself. The worst thing you can do is to take a look at the car. You should always ask for as much information as possible and do as much research as possible to give yourself an idea of what you're getting.

What is salvage title insurance?

Most people know there are insurance companies for auto accidents, but some are unaware of the salvaged title car insurance. This form of insurance is for people who want to continue using their vehicle after it has an accident or has some other defect that prevents it from being safe to drive. Insurance policies that cover salvaged title cars are for people who want to keep their car instead of trading it in for something newer. These policies are also for people who aren't able to pay the cash value for a new car due to their low income.

Can I get an auto loan for a rebuilt title car?

The best way to see if you qualify for an auto loan with a rebuilt title is to check with several lenders and compare rates and repayment terms. You may want to consider comparing lenders whose business is to do auto loans with rebuilt titles. At the very least, you should be able to find one or two lenders who specialize in auto loans with rebuilt titles. The easiest way to do this is to use Google. Simply type in "auto title loan lenders" and you should find a few companies whose business is to do auto loans with rebuilt titles.

Here are a few tips to help you figure out how to get an auto loan for a rebuilt title. Start off by talking to a few different banks and financial institutions and find out what you can and can't do with a rebuilt title and what the different options are. Determine which route is best for you, but be sure that you get all the information you need before you start down that road.

What is a typical rebuilt title application process?

A salvage vehicle may be re-titled and registered in several ways. The owner should be aware that there are regulations that must be followed. If the car was even partially rebuilt from parts sourced from other salvage cars, such as those purchased from a salvage yard, the owner will have to have an Affidavit of Motor Vehicle Assembled From Wrecked or Salvaged Motor Vehicles filled out and notarized.

The process for replacing a lost title varies depending on the state you live in. In many states, in order to make a replacement title application, you'll need to submit a few pieces of information and provide a small fee. First, you'll need to fill out an application for a replacement title and indicate type of lost title and where you lost it. You'll also need to provide proof of insurance and pay a fee. Then, you'll take this application to your local county clerk and hopefully receive your replacement title.

It's important to fulfill the requirements of a salvaged vehicle before you can apply for a title and registration. Additionally, you will need to inspect the vehicle and restore it to a safe and drivable condition. This will require obtaining parts and repairing and replacing any and all body parts and mechanical systems. There is a specific order that you must follow. First, you'll need to verify the VIN. Then, you'll need to inspect the vehicle and all the parts. After that, you'll need to replace or repair the body and mechanical systems. Finally, you'll need to notify the DMV and fill out the necessary applications for a title and registration.
