New York DMV Vehicle Transfer | Vehicle Donations

Title Transfer

New York

Currently, CARS is unaware of any special requirements for New York. Typically, this means transfer notification is not required for your state and transfer of ownership occurs when you surrender the plates.


Please remove the license plates and the windshield registration sticker, which shows your plate number, and surrender the plates to a motor vehicle office (unless you are transferring them to a replacement vehicle).

The purchaser of your donated vehicle is NOT the charity. It will either be the vendor or Charitable Adult Rides & Services.
