The California DMV requires that any salvaged vehicle is in safe, roadworthy condition before being re-titled. To ensure that critical components such as brakes and headlamps are not damaged or misaligned, a state-licensed Brake & Lamp Inspection Station must conduct a thorough examination and issue a certificate upon completion. Once the certificate is presented to the DMV, the vehicle can be legally registered.
