Do I need to get a safety check for my salvaged vehicle?

My car was marked a total loss by my insurance company after an accident, but I decided to keep the vehicle. I received a reduced settlement and repaired the damage. I'm adding it back to my insurance policy, and I'm wondering if I need to provide them with a safety check?

“While your car insurance company may not require a salvage vehicle examination or safety check to insure your vehicle, many states do. New York and Arizona are two states that require salvage vehicles to be inspected prior to the DMV issuing a salvage title or registration.
Your insurance company will require that your vehicle is properly registered, so it’s important to check with your state’s DMV to confirm that your vehicle is ready to be insured and on the road. “
