Q: Does my car have to run and drive?

A: No!  Teen Challenge will gladly take vehicles running or not.

We do require that the vehicle is complete with the drive train intact
and the tires and wheels in place.

Q: What about a tax deduction?
A: Most vehicles qualify for a substantial tax deduction!

Teen Challenge will issue a tax-deductable receipt when we pick up
your vehicle. (Please consult your Tax Professional for up-to-date tax information and to find out if you qualify)

Q: Do I need a current smog certificate to donate my vehicle?
A: No! Teen Challenge does not require any vehicle to pass smog prior
to donation.

Q: What about past due registration?
A: Teen Challenge can accept some vehicles that are not currently registered. 
The Donor, Legal Owner or Registered Owner will still be responsible for any
past due registration fees and or late penalties accumulated prior to donation.
(Contact your local Department of Motor Vehicles for more information)
