Custom Built Car Registration in Minnesota
Before taking a vehicle in for inspection, you must apply for a Minnesota registration and title and must provide the vehicle identification number (VIN) on the application. If the VIN on a vehicle or parts has been removed, or looks as if it might have been altered or tampered with, a Minnesota title may not be issued, Minnesota DVS advises.
When a custom car or reconstructed car registration application is reviewed by Minnesota DVS, additional documentation or information could be required. This includes the following:
- Completed Declaration of Reconstruction, including details about vehicle alterations or reconstruction
- Proof of ownership for major vehicle parts
A vehicle might be subject to bonding if there is not minimum proof of ownership for the following components or parts:
- Vehicle, truck, or motorcycle frame
If bonding is required, a statement and affidavit of protection must be included with the title application.
