Before a self-assembled vehicle or a salvage vehicle can be titled in Ohio, an inspection of the vehicle must be completed by the Ohio State Highway Patrol to verify the ownership of all parts and to review all required documentation. The inspection is not intended to certify the vehicle’s safety or the quality of workmanship.
Each inspection requires a separate $50 fee, which may be paid at any BMV Deputy Registrar location. Anyone needing a vehicle inspection shall:
- Obtain a receipt for the inspection at any BMV Deputy Registrar location.
- Schedule a salvage inspection by using the Vehicle Inspection Gateway.
