The new car discount program for people with disabilities (PCD) offers exemptions from taxes and fees, with a good reduction in the final value of the vehicle.

Program benefits

The main benefit lies in the final value of the vehicle due to the tax exemption: IPI; ICMS; IOF; IPVA for the year of purchase and licensing fee.

Requirements to participate

To be entitled to the discount on a new car for PWDs, you must have a physical, visual, hearing, intellectual or multiple disability; proof by medical report issued by a doctor accredited by the SUS; not have another tax-exempt vehicle in your name in the last 3 years; have a gross monthly family income equal to or less than R$5,500.00.

Buying process

The process of purchasing a new car with a PCD discount is simple, by choosing the vehicle at the dealership and presenting supporting documentation. The exemption is requested by the dealership at the time of purchase.

The exemption can be consulted on the official websites of the Ministry of Economy; of Detran and the State Finance Secretariat of the PCD.

The choice of vehicle can be consulted on the website of the Brazilian Association of Motor Vehicle Dealers (ABRACAVE).
