In the state of Nevada, when they check a salvage vehicle, they look for several things...

1. The car is operational, running properly, pass smog inspection.
2. The car has all safety equipment from that year (i.e. working seat belts, air bags, etc.)
3. All the lights are working (headlamps, turn signals, taillamps, reverse lamp).
4. All the glass are there intact with NO dings, dents, or cracks
5. Wipers are working properly.
6. Brake system is working
7. All the body components are there, fender, hood, bumpers, etc.

I believe that's about it, that's what the check for at the DMV, you have to drive the vehicle to the inspection lot. But you also have to get a licensed mechanic to write off a slip that also does several tests (mainly that the vehicle is running properly).

That's it, then the Salvage title becomes a Recondition Vehicle Title.

Go in the DMV, stand in line for about 3-4 hours and get the car licensed and registered.

I don't know how it works over there, but in order to get a car license (get license plates and registration) we need to go to the DMV, not the insurance company? :confused:

In order to get a license plate and registration for the first time you have to go to the DMV, since it is a state issued plate/registration.
