What is the Giving Back Program for Non-Profit Organizations and Veterans?
In New York and most states, you should remove them once the towing company arrives and return them to your local Department of Motor Vehicles. Alaska, California, Hawaii and Minnesota are an exception to this rule and the license plates should stay with the vehicle.
In Arizona, California, Illinois, Minnesota and Washington, you may also be required to sign a release of liability to the DMV. Visit the DMV’s website to learn more about rules and regulations in your area.
How do I sign my title?
You should sign your title like you’re going to sell your vehicle. Print and sign your name as the “Seller” in the same way it appears on the front of the title.
Can I donate a car without the title?
No. A Certificate of Title is required. If you cannot locate the title, please contact your local DMV to obtain a duplicate certificate or contact us and we’ll be happy to assist you.
