The required examination is part of the NYS Auto Theft Prevention Program. The program includes vehicles that were issued a NYS Salvage Certificate (MV-907A). The program also includes rebuilt salvage vehicles from most other states.
A NYS title certificate issued after the date of May 18, 1999 for a rebuilt salvage vehicle displays the brand, "Rebuilt Salvage". Some title certificates issued before May 19, 1999 also show this brand. Read more information about the salvage branding process.
