If you have a title, and it is red, then you can't register it at all. The only thing you can do is sell it to an individual for parts only or to a salvage yard. If the title is blue, then you should be able to register it and it will be a salvage title. If all you have is a certificate of destruction and no title, then its the same as having a red title.

How to tag and register a certificate of destruction vehicle in Florida?

Yes, you must apply for a rebuilt title. This will require two VIN's and an application for rebuilt title. You could take two certificate of destruction of the same type of vehicle. or one title and one CD of the same type of vehicle to prove that the vehicle has been rebuilt. Also you can apply for a rebuilt title with only one vin if you kept all your receipts when making repairs to the vehicles. Bottom line you must show substantial repair. It's a well kept secret the tax collector doesn't want you to know. They will automatically say no you can not register a car with a CD. If you ask them for a application for rebuilt title, with the instructions, you will get all the information you need.

How can you title a certificate of destruction vehicle?

You usually cannot register a vehicle with a certificate of destruction, due to dangers that may emerge. In fact when you buy such a vehicle the dealer must tell you it cannot be registered in America to avoid any potential I have heard that of states in the south allow such vehicles to be registered, but northern states, such as Michigan, forbid such cars to be registered.Another option would be to get it retitled as a custom built vehicle. If you replace and/or modify major parts (engine, transmission, frame, etc.), and can provide proof of ownership of the major parts, get the vehicle inspected (usually by the state highway patrol, not an inspection station), you may be able to get a title as a custom built vehicle. The issue is how many changes you must make to get the vehicle to be considered custom built. This will vary from state to state. I would ask your state's DMV or highway patrol what constitutes a custom built vehicle before starting down this path, and if having a previous certificate of destruction would prohibit the use of the major parts.

Is there a way to register a vehicle with a Forida Title Certificate of Destruction?

From the Florida DMV website: "Existing law only prohibits the retitiling of an unrebuilable vehicle. It does not prevent such vehicle from being rebuilt or sold in a rebuilt condition in Florida, thus making vehicles available in what would otherwise be an unsafe condition for persons outside this state. To prohibit the rebuilding or selling of an unrebuildable vehicle that has been rebuilt in the state would clearly send a message to those who are redoing these unsafe vehicles that the state will not tolerate such conduct." A Certificate of Destruction (or C of D) is only issued when the car is unrebuildable (as deemed by the insurance company). These are cars that required more than 80% of the vehicle's cost to repair. If this were a salvaged title however, it may be possible to retitle it. So, in short, no you cannot.
