To apply for a salvage/rebuilt title, you will need:
Signed and notarized salvaged title from Kentucky or out-of-state.
Signed and notarized seller's signature on the TC 96-184 form where it states "seller's signature," on the bottom left-hand side.
Buyer's notarized signature on the TC 96-215 form.
If the boat was repaired, whoever repaired the boat must complete the TC 96-353 form, and have their signature notarized.
All receipts, if any, will need to be provided with documentation to get approval from the state to title and register a rebuilt or salvaged boat.
An inspection by the state Fish and Game Warden is required before your paperwork can be submitted to the Transportation Cabinet. Please call 1-606-416-8070 to schedule your inspection.
For Kentucky titles, please visit the Clerk's Office (Richmond or Berea Branches) in-person. Out-of-state titles must go to Frankfort.
