    Question 10: Can I register a vehicle that has been wrecked or has a salvage title?

    Can I register a vehicle that has been wrecked or has a salvage title?

    If you are the titled owner, you may purchase registration on a vehicle that has been wrecked but still has a regular Texas title.  Unfortunately, you are not allowed to purchase registration on your vehicle with any type of salvage title or salvage remark on the record. Once a vehicle has been repaired, application can be made for a regular Texas title and registration may be purchased at the time of application.   

    For more information on how to title a vehicle that has a salvage title or a salvage remark on the record, see the FAQ's - Motor Vehicle Titles.
