I donated my vehicle and was wondering how can I let you know that we don’t have that vehicle anymore?
A) If you have already donated your vehicle and transferred the ownership to the organization or charity to which you donated it, then you should not need to inform the DMV that you no longer have the vehicle. The new owner of the vehicle should have taken care of the necessary paperwork to transfer the title and register the vehicle in their name.
However, if you have not yet transferred the ownership of the vehicle, you will need to follow your state’s specific process to transfer the title to the new owner. This typically involves signing over the title to the new owner and submitting the appropriate documentation to the DMV to update their records. Once the transfer is complete, you should no longer be responsible for any registration or licensing fees for that vehicle.
Here are the steps on how to notify the DMV about your donated vehicle:
- Go to the DMV website and find the form for notifying them about a donated vehicle.
- Fill out the form and provide all of the required information, including your name, address, the vehicle’s VIN number, and the date of donation.
- Sign and date the form.
- Mail the form to the address on the form.
You can also call the DMV and notify them about your donated vehicle over the phone. The phone number for the DMV is usually listed on their website.
Once you have notified the DMV about your donated vehicle, you will be released from any liability for the vehicle. This means that you will not be responsible for any tickets, accidents, or other problems that happen with the vehicle after it has been donated.
Here are some additional tips for notifying the DMV about your donated vehicle:
- Make sure to fill out the form completely and accurately. Any errors on the form could delay the process of releasing you from liability for the vehicle.
- Keep a copy of the form for your records. This will help you if you ever have any questions about your donated vehicle.
- If you have any questions about notifying the DMV about your donated vehicle, you can call the DMV and ask them for help.
