Pennsylvania Salvaged Vehicle Regulations | DMV.ORG

Collisions, floods, theft—they can all leave you with a salvaged car, or what the insurance business calls a total loss. You can’t legally drive a salvaged car (even if it still starts!), but the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has a few ways for you to deal with it.
