Custom Built Car RegistrationIf you're a custom-built car buff, we at DMV.org have custom-built this page just for you. We understand that tracking down custom-built car registration information from your state's DMV can be harder than finding discontinued engine parts in a salvage yard piled high with anonymous junkers.
All the information in this section is state-specific. We'll directly cover your state's regulations, beginning with how it defines a custom-built car, street rod, or kit car.
We then provide a list of required information that's to-the-point―not muddled with the type of language that even a Harvard law graduate would puzzle over. You'll learn what information to submit to your state's DMV. Depending on your state, this could include proof of a vehicle inspection by law enforcement, a title application, a certificate of origin, a confirmed vehicle identification number (VIN), photographs of your creation, and bills of sale for parts purchased.
And if available, we also provide links to the downloadable information sheets and forms your state provides. This will spare you the hassle of having to take time out to track this paperwork down at a busy DMV office.
Plus, we include required VIN application and vehicle registration fees and tell you exactly where to submit your documents.
At DMV.org, you'll find that regardless of how specialized your vehicle, we've custom-built an easy-to-read page to your state's exact specifications.
