In an ongoing effort to bring the highest level of customer service to the public, the Ohio State Highway Patrol has created a new salvage inspection scheduling service. Customers may now schedule salvage inspection appointments at their convenience at ext.dps.state.oh.us/SalvageInspectionAppointment/.
The new online service will streamline the scheduling process and reduce the time inspectors spend on the telephone scheduling appointments, thereby allowing more time to complete actual inspections. However, this online service is only available to those wishing to obtain a salvage inspection for salvaged vehicles and not for self-assembled vehicles. Customers wishing to obtain an inspection for a self-assembled vehicle should follow the current procedure and call in to one of the Patrol's 10 inspection sites to schedule an appointment.
Before a salvaged vehicle can be titled in Ohio, an inspection of the vehicle must be completed by the Patrol. The purpose of this inspection is to verify the ownership of all parts and to review all required documentation.
