Glossary
  • If a vehicle does not have a status of rebuilt, salvage, non-repairable or altered, it is considered to have a normal status. "Normal" is simply a term used for the purposes of vehicle registration.

    A normal status does not mean the vehicle has never been damaged or is in good mechanical condition. Vehicle status alone does not fully describe a vehicle's mechanical condition or damage history.

  • This status is assigned to "salvage" vehicles after they have been repaired and have passed inspection.

    Please note: vehicle status alone does not fully describe a vehicle's mechanical condition or damage history.

  • This status is given to a vehicle that has been written off in an accidental loss, but has the potential to be repaired or reconstructed. The vehicle must be repaired and inspected before it can be licensed or reinsured.

    Please note: vehicle status alone does not fully describe a vehicle's mechanical condition or damage history.

  • This status is given to a vehicle that has been significantly modified after its manufacture. It is also used for homemade and some other constructed vehicles to indicate that they have been inspected and are structurally sound. The status is added when the vehicle has passed inspection.

    Please note: vehicle status alone does not fully describe a vehicle's mechanical condition or damage history.

  • This status is given to a vehicle that
    • has been written off or otherwise decommissioned
    • cannot be repaired due to structural or safety impairment, and
    • can never be relicensed or insured.

    A non-repairable vehicle may be used only for parts or scrap.
