Rebuilt Vehicles (cars, trucks, vans and motorcycles)

Chapter 32-03

The vehicle must be in running order before the original forms may be submitted to our office.

Complete an Application for Motor Vehicle Title and Registration. The application must be filed in the county of the new applicant's residence. The application must be signed by the record owner(s) or by an authorized agent for the record owner(s). If the application is signed by an authorized agent, a power of attorney document must be attached to verify the appointment.

Complete the Affidavit for Rebuilt Vehicles (MV-950) and submit to the county treasurer.

Titles or bills of sale establishing ownership and receipts for parts must be attached. There is also a $25 special serial number fee (check is to be made out to the Division of Motor Vehicles). All forms, attachments, and fees must be submitted through the county treasurer's office.

Rebuilt vehicles are subject to inspection by the Highway Patrol or an employee of the Department of Revenue.

After inspection, the owner may take his copy of the certificate of inspection to the county treasurer, purchase license plates, and pay any tax owed. Once the Division of Motor Vehicles is notified that the inspection is complete and has verified that the correct amount of tax has been paid, a rebuilt title will be issued.

Motor vehicle titling and registration fees are done through your local county treasurers office. Click here for all applicable license fees that must be paid to the county treasurer.
