This is not universally true. I have two (non-TDI) vehicles that were declared totaled by the insurance company (and show as such in VIN searches) but the Maryland MVA continues to register them. The damage was mostly cosmetic and I was able to pay for the repairs out-of-pocket for less than the insurance company settlement, but I never had to get a salvage inspection.

This is a prime example of the issues when dealing with totaled vehicles, every state is different.
