Pennsylvania Reconstructed Titles

A number of Pennsylvania Reconstructed Titles have been obtained fraudulently without having a salvage inspection completed.  These vehicles require an inspection prior to registration in Massachusetts except in the following scenarios:

  • Pennsylvania Reconstructed Titles with an issue date prior to 01/01/2019
  • Pennsylvania Reconstructed Titles presented by an individual with a valid MVU-29 (Affidavit in Support of a Claim for Exemption from Sales or Use Tax for a Motor Vehicle Purchased Outside of Massachusetts)

All other customers with Pennsylvania Reconstructed Titles must follow these steps to register their vehicles in Massachusetts:

  1. Apply for a Massachusetts Salvage Title.  Refer customers to the Apply for a Salvage Title page on the RMV website.
  2. Pass a Massachusetts Salvage Inspection.  Refer customers to the Salvage Inspections page on the RMV website.
  3. Obtain a Massachusetts Reconstructed Title.  Refer customers to the Apply for a Recovered Theft or Reconstructed Title page on the RMV website.
