If your insurance company has determined that your vehicle is a "total loss" or the word "salvage" has been stamped on the title, it is illegal to operate this vehicle anywhere in Connecticut.
The registration on this vehicle has been cancelled, and the insurance company has sent the DMV a copy of the title stamped “salvage.” You should remove the plates from your vehicle.
However, the registration and plates on the salvaged vehicle can be transferred to another vehicle.
If you rebuild the salvaged vehicle, you should re-title it. Before you re-titled it, it needs to first pass a salvage inspection.
If the title is branded "salvage parts only" or "salvage unrebuildable" or "salvage unrepairable", the vehicle can’t be registered or re-titled under any circumstances.
