Every state is different. If by any chance you are in Calif. go to: http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/brochures/howto/htvr13.htm..has step by step instructions. Otherwise, Google "car salvage title (insert State)"

salvage title, its titled in the first place, cause you don't own it .period .get it ?you don't! anyway salvage means it was paid for in full by an insurance co. from some reason .usually damage more than the worth of itself .the car,truck ,what ever .now some ingenious repair guru says" that can still be suitable for use" buys it from the insurance co.or salvage yard if it made it that far,and makes it roadworthy .you have a right to know it was damaged to this extent.although the damage to total on some cars may just be a small wiring fire if the car is only worth small cash it will be total by small repair cash With your right to know this most states if not all by now ,stamp the title. mostly for the insurance companies. as they don't like paying another total for one they bought in the past. they will deduct on the second total to a degree. therefore this mark makes it supposedly ,worth less. For some ,that's all they will buy to save on cost.like a 3 year old car with a price of a 6 year old same car. not bad if the repair is done good ,and sometime better.
