Write-offs with any collision or structural damage must meet special requirements under the Stolen and Wrecked Vehicle Monitoring Program before they can be registered

There are two categories of write-offs:

  • Irreparable: A write-off that cannot be made road worthy.
  • Salvageable: A write-off that can be rebuilt. To be roadworthy, it must receive both a Body Integrity Inspection Certificate and a Certificate of Inspection.
  • A salvageable vehicle can also be classed as Salvage with Exception. This occurs when damage is from something other than a collision, such as hail. In this case, a BIIC is not required and a COI is only required only when the vehicle is sold.
