Can I register the car and drive it in the United States?

If it’s a clean title, yes. If it’s a salvage title, you would first have to do a reconstruction on it in your state in order for it to become street legal again. Parts only or certificate of destructions cannot be registered in the USA. They can only be used for parts. Read more

What is NMVTIS (National Motor Vehicle Title Information System)?

NMVTIS is National Motor Vehicle Title Information System implemented by US Department of Justice. The NMVTIS is designed to protect consumers from fraud and unsafe vehicles and to keep stolen vehicles from being resold. NMVTIS is also a tool that assists states and law enforcement in deterring and preventing title fraud and other crimes.

All states DMV`s report the data to NMVTIS and check against NMVTIS database every time the title is transferred. DMV`s have the right to deem any title branded according to the records in the NMVTIS database.

All Clean title vehicles sold through salvage auctions have a chance of the title becoming salvage when processed by DMV. Please refer to for details.
