Default what all is involved in a salvage vehicle inspection in OHIO

my dad will be taking his bike to get inspected and out of salvage so we can then sell it. My question is, what all is involved with the inspection? I know they check the VIN, headlights, brake lights, turn signal, horn, kill switch...but do they actually drive it?

Here's a link:

It's not really a road worthiness inspection. They're more interested in making sure that anything you've used to "repair" the vehicle isn't stolen. Also if you've bought parts from a private party, they will want you to have recipts, sometimes notarized, and pay tax on the amount of your purchases.

A couple tips: Besides being at your appointment on time, make sure the bike is clean, so the inspector doesn't get greasy. Also, STFU and let the inspector be the expert. Don't volunteer information. That way you won't unknowingly say something that could trigger a red flag in the inspector's mind.
