The Georgia Department of Revenue oversees Salvage and Assembled Vehicle Inspectors that perform inspections on vehicles for the purpose of obtaining a certificate of title. Salvage and assembled vehicle inspectors must conduct inspections as accurately as possible and must pay for any loss or damages and expenses if an owner or purchaser of a salvaged or assembled motor vehicle results in property damage from a negligent inspection.
Applicants for a salvage and assembled vehicle inspector must complete a license/registration application (Form MV-175) and provide the following:
Pay the applicable registration fee.
Provide a Certificate of Completion of an approved Used Motor Vehicle Dealer Pre-Licensing Seminar.
Provide a copy of I-CAR® credentials.
Provide a resume' demonstrating two or more years in the motor vehicle collision or rebuilding industry.
Provide proof of personal liability insurance meeting the state's requirements of $1,000,000 aggregate, $100,00 per occurrence unless the inspector is a full-time employee of a registered inspection station.
Applicants will need to obtain a $50,000 surety bond. The surety bond ensures that inspectors will adhere to the Motor Vehicle Certificate of Title Act and the Rules and Regulations of the State of Georgia's Department of Revenue.
Independent inspectors will need to enter into a contract with the Department to conduct inspections.
Inspectors will need to pay any local, state and federal taxes in a timely manner.
Inspector registration must be renewed by December 31 of each year.
