No. A salvage vehicle can NOT be driven legally on the roads until it is “reconstructed”. Typically, the vehicle needs to be towed to your designated location. Then the vehicle undergoes the “reconstruction” process as per your state’s guidelines. Finally, once the “reconstruction” process is complete, you can register and insure the vehicle to be driven on the roads.
In certain cases, Insurance Auction personnel is able to verify a vehicle’s Engine Start capability and Run and Drive condition at the time of the vehicle check-in to the auction facility.
The verification is usually as follows: upon arrival to the auction facility, the vehicle may be started with or without jump, booster box, wire splicing/bypassing, etc, the vehicle could be put into gear and pulled forward under its own power. Read more
