Title Transfer

New Jersey

Currently, CARS is unaware of any special notification requirements for New Jersey. However, if you need to transfer vehicle ownership, you may do so only at a motor vehicle agency; this type of transaction cannot be handled through the mail.


License plates must be given to a local Motor Vehicle Commission; registration ticket must also be removed from the window. Please remove the plates and surrender them to a motor vehicle agency or full agency—unless the plates are being transferred to another vehicle (plates can be transferred to another vehicle, but not to another owner).

The purchaser of your donated vehicle is NOT the charity. It will either be the vendor or Charitable Adult Rides & Services.
For more information on vehicle transfer and release of reliability, contact your local Motor Vehicle Commission:
