Car donation: what is it and how does it work?

To give your car to a friend or family member, you need to make a donation deed. Here is how it works and what are the procedures to follow.

Car donation is a very common practice among private individuals, it requires a very simple procedure and low costs. The expression “car donation” means precisely the practical act with which a person – defined as a donor – donates his car to another person – called the donee – without requiring any consideration. Precisely for this reason the donation takes place in most cases between private individuals or in any case between subjects linked by emotional ties or kinship.

It should be noted that there are different types of car donations that differ precisely in the type of purpose, such as for example the “restricted” one. In this case, the donation can be made only when a certain condition is met or a specific purpose is achieved. In the event that this condition is not met, no type of transfer of goods will be carried out.

Another possibility is to establish the exact moment – day, month and year – in which the donation will actually take place, this means that before that moment the recipient will not be able to exercise any rights. The last alternative concerns the application of the right of usufruct, so no transfer of goods or services will take place as long as the donor remains alive.

Car donation: what are the procedures to follow?

The first condition to check before embarking on the donation procedure is to make sure that the donor, or whoever transfers the asset, is in full possession of his faculties and therefore is fully aware of his actions and the consequences of his gesture. For his part, the donee must instead make sure that the asset, which in the case of the car donation is the car, is not the result of illegal activities.

In the case of a car donation between individuals, the procedure is very similar to that envisaged for the sale. Therefore, the person who intends to donate their car will have to go to a car practice agency at the STA – Automotive Telematic Desk and submit the following documentation:

1. a valid identity document;
2. the certificate of ownership – CDP – to prove full ownership of the vehicle;
the certificate of residence of the donee or the affidavit that must be signed by the beneficiary at the counter.
3. If the car tax were to expire before the date set for the donation, the situation must be regularized.
