How to Register a Vehicle in Florida

In Florida, you must get car registrations for vehicles that will be driven on state roadways. In fact, it is illegal to drive a car without proper vehicle registration. If you recently bought or were a gifted an automobile, RV or motorcycle, take time to review the necessary steps to get car registration in Florida. Keep in mind that with your new FL car registration, you will also be required to apply for a new car title.

Types of Vehicle Registration

First things first, identify which type of DMV car registration you need to apply for in Florida. Vehicles that must be registered with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) are:

  • New cars.
  • Used cars.
  • Motorcycles.
  • RVs or Motor homes.
  • Custom-built vehicles.
  • Salvaged vehicles.
  • Exception: ATVs and OHVs cannot be driven on highways or roads, and don't need to be registered for this reason. However, owners must title the ATVs or ORVs with the FL DHSMV.
  • Exception: If you own a slide-in camper, a modular home, or a trailer weighing less than 2,000 pounds, you don't have to get vehicle registration.

Depending on which type of vehicle you have, you will need to get:

  • Car insurance.
  • Motorcycle insurance.
  • Commercial car insurance.
  • Boat insurance.
  • RV insurance (motorhome insurance).
  • Trailer insurance.
  • Sports car insurance.

Although it is not a requirement, also recommends Florida drivers to get OHV insurance. It's important you have vehicle coverage that meets the state's minimum liability requirements before heading to your local tax county collector's office.

There are different processes for each type of vehicle, however if you own more than one type of vehicle, you will quickly see that there are overlapping elements. How you get vehicle registration and titles for cars will depend on your unique situation. The most common are:

  • If you are a new resident to Florida.
  • If you bought a new car from an authorized dealership.
  • If you bought a used vehicle from a private party.
  • If you were gifted a vehicle.
  • If you rebuilt or salvaged a vehicle.

Remember: The FL DHSMV does not handle issues regarding vehicle registration or titling. Instead, you will need to see your local county tax collector's office for any issues concerning your vehicle registration and title like:

  • Getting new vehicle registration.
  • Replacing vehicle registration.
  • Renewing vehicle registration.
  • Getting a new vehicle title.
  • Replacing a vehicle title.
  • Transfer a car title.

How New Residents Register Out-of-State Vehicles and Get a Florida Title

If you recently moved to Florida with your vehicle from another state, you have 10 days to get new vehicle registration and title it. This means that within 10 days of setting up a new residence in Florida, you must announce your arrival to the FL DMV and make your vehicle legal to drive state roadways.

Keep in mind, that in order to successfully get car registration:

  • You will need to purchase Florida car insurance. There are certain state minimum car insurance requirements that you will need to abide by as well.
  • You must have a new drivers license from the Florida DMV.

If you have Florida auto insurance and a valid driver's license, follow the steps below to get new vehicle registration:

  1. Find your local tax collector's office and make an appointment if possible.
  2. To get car registration, the owner of the vehicle must bring the following documentation:
  3. Pay auto registration fees. There isn't a standard new registration fee in Florida because several factors will determine the costs, such as:
    • Sales tax
    • Use taxes depending on how long you owned your vehicle.
    • The weight of the vehicle.
    • Its purpose (commercial or personal)

For example, if you have owned your vehicle for less than six months, you will have to pay six percent sales or use tax. If you have owned your vehicle for more than six months, you won't have to pay sales and use taxes, but your out-of-state title must state that you have owned the vehicle for more than six months.

How to Register Cars Purchased from a Dealership

  1. Buying a new car from a dealership is the simplest way of registering cars in Florida. Keep in mind that in order to leave the lot with your brand new automobile, you will need to have auto insurance. Be sure to review insurance quotes for automobiles, fast cars, motorcycles, RVs or trailers before your final purchase date. The dealership can help you find car insurance, however more likely than not, it will be more expensive coverage.
  2. When you purchase a new vehicle from an authorized dealership, the seller will take care of car registration and the new car title. Ask beforehand if the dealership uses the Electronic Temporary Registration (ETR) and the Electronic Filing System (EFS) in order to receive temporary license plates.
  3. The dealer then has 30 days to transfer the title and registration into your name. Call the DHSMV if the transfer is not completed within a month.

Vanity License Plates
If you're interested in getting personalized license plates, start looking now. Florida has hundreds of different types of vanity license plates you can purchase. You can even get a customized license plate to spell out a one-of-a-kind message. If you want the full experience of getting a new automobile, be sure to get a specialty license plate as well.

How to Register Cars Bought Used from a Private Party

If you are buying a car from a private party in Florida, you are responsible for getting new car registration documents and a transferred title for your car. Review the list below for all the documents you will need to get vehicle registration papers and a new vehicle title.

Before you finalize the car purchase, we recommend that you request a vehicle history report from the seller. When buying a used vehicle, you want to be certain that you are getting what you pay for. A vehicle history record check is the only true way to know a car's history. A detailed motor vehicle record will list previous accidents, maintenance, as well as a true odometer reading. For the most accurate reading, get a vehicle history record check from a company that requires the vehicle identification number (VIN) to create the vehicle history record.

To successfully register a used vehicle and a get a used car title, be sure to compile the following documentation:

  1. On the date of the transaction, fill out two copies of the Bill of Sale form — one for both seller and buyer. It's advised that you get the Bill of Sale notarized for stronger evidence of the transaction.
  2. If the vehicle is titled outside of the state, you will also have to fill out the following forms:
  3. In addition, the seller must properly transfer the title into your name — the buyer.
  4. Once you have the paperwork, you are ready to book an appointment at your local tax collector's office.
  5. Bring the above documents, as well as proof of Florida auto coverage. If you don't have vehicle insurance yet, you have many options to apply for great vehicle insurance.
  6. Bring a form of payment: Cash or check. Note: Since July of 2000, the state of Florida no longer requires smog inspections for vehicles that are getting registered in Florida. However, the FL DMV does offer rewards to vehicles that are EPA certified. Visit their site to find out more:

Non-Resident Florida Vehicle Registration (Temporary Tags)

If you are purchasing a vehicle in Florida and then moving it to another state, you can also ask your county tax collector´s office for a temporary registration tag to move your vehicle back to your home state. You will have to pay Florida sales tax and also provide proof of car insurance for the vehicle.

  2. If you are a Florida military resident, you will have to follow the same procedure as any other resident. The difference is that your initial registration fee will be waived.

Military Florida Residents Living Out-of-State

If you are a military resident living outside of Florida, encourages you to file a Power of Attorney to allow someone else to file paperwork on your behalf at your local tax collector's office.

Suspended Vehicle Registration in Florida

  1. Lack of proper vehicle insurance. Florida requires residents to get auto insurance that meets certain minimum insurance standards, and if you cannot produce insurance within the given timeframe you are allotted from the FL DMV, your registration will be suspended. Fortunately, there are great deals for cheap vehicle insurance quotes you can buy today if you're driving an uninsured vehicle.
  2. If your car insurance policy is cancelled for any reason and you do not get new vehicle coverage, your car registration could be suspended. To reinstate your vehicle registration, you will need to go in person and show proof of insurance. Look for vehicle auto insurance quotes today.

Get RV Registration or Motorhome Registration in Florida

If you bought a new RV or motor home from an authorized dealer, the seller will take care of the vehicle registration on your behalf. If you want to register an out-of-state RV or used motorhome, follow these steps to get RV registration or motorhome registration. Note: To register an RV or motorhome in Florida, you must already have:

  • RV insurance or motorhome insurance that complies with Florida minimum liability standards. If you don't have insurance, there are many excellent and affordable motorhome and RV insurance policies to choose from online.
  • A Florida driver's license.

Once you have those two items, you may begin the process to get vehicle registration for your RV or motor home.

  2. Bring the following documentation:
    • Valid Florida driver's license of the owner, or owners of the vehicle

  2. Bring a signed and completed Application for Registration of a Street Rod, Custom Vehicle, Horseless Carriage or Antique (Permanent)
    • Note: Vehicles manufactured before 1949 are considered street rod, while vehicles 25 years old or older, built after 1948 are considered custom vehicles.

  4. Show proof of automobile insurance.
  5. You will find that a new custom-built vehicle registration excludes your vehicle from inspections or emissions testing.

Register Motorcycles

In Florida, all motorcycles, mopeds and disability access vehicles must display a license plate. Motorized scooters are not. However, there are different requirements for getting motorcycle registration and motorcycle titles.

  • You must get motorcycle registration and have it titled to your name.
  • Mopeds and disability access vehicles need to be registered, but not titled.

  2. You will have to process certain applications that will be given to you at that point in time.

    • Bill of Sale
    • Vehicle registration certificate
    • Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin
    • Signed affidavit stating you are the legal and rightful owner of the vehicle

Get Replacement License Plates for Motorcycles

On the application form, make sure you indicate that your license plates were stolen to get the replacement license plate fees waived.

To replace your motorcycle license plates, follow these steps:

  1. Make an appointment at the nearest county license plate agency.
  2. Bring your Florida registration certificate.
  3. Sign and complete Application for Replacement License Plate, Validation Decal or Parking Permit.

Contact your local tax collector's office to get information about the fees you are required to pay.

Salvage Title Cars

Salvaged cars are vehicles that have been badly damaged and cannot be driven in Florida streets. These automobiles are usually destroyed in a junk yard; others can be rebuilt and used again.
If this is the case for your car, you will need to get a salvage car title before getting rid of or rebuilding your vehicle. Your insurance company may take care of the procedure, but if you are applying for a salvaged title yourself in Florida, go the nearest local tax county office to you:

  • A Completed Application for Salvage Title/Certificate of Destruction
  • Proof of ownership:
    • Original Florida certificate of title
    • Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin
    • Out-of-state title.

A salvaged title will be needed particularly if you have designs to custom-build a new vehicle with its frame or parts, or if you plan to sell it.
If you plan to sell a salvaged vehicle, be sure to include a vehicle history report to show how well you have taken care of your vehicle in the aftermath. Note: Fees vary from one county to another.

Rebuilt Car Titles

If your vehicle was damaged by a floor or robbery, or perhaps it went through a serious accident, you can rebuild it. If this is the case for you, you need to get a rebuilt salvage title, or a Salvage Rebuildable title. Rebuilt vehicles must always have a notice on the title stating their status as salvage/rebuilt. The tax collector's office will provide a special decal that must also be placed on the car.

About Off-Highway Vehicles

You can enjoy Florida's outdoors using off-highway vehicles (OHVs). The two most common types of OHVs are:

  1. All-terrain vehicles (ATVs)
  2. Off-highway motorcycles (OHMs)

ATVs and OHMs are not allowed on normal roads and highways. For this reason, OHVs do not need to be registered in Florida. Even so, you must get an OHV title through the Florida Forest Service to legally ride an OHV in the state.

Titling Off-Highway Vehicles in Florida

Get an OHV title in Florida by following these steps:

  1. First, book an appointment at your local county tax collector's office.
  2. Bring:
  • Proof of ownership:
    • Manufacture's Certificate of Origin
    • Bill of sale with year, make and VIN
    • Affidavit of ownership with the year, make and VIN
  • Completed Application for Certificate of Title
  • Lien satisfaction, if applicable
  • Proof of payment of sales tax:
  • For a list of OHV title fees, review this chart provided by the FL DHSMV.
  • recommends that you get OHV insurance just in case. Repairs can be costly, particularly since you will be using your ATV through unpaved land. It's not required however, there are cheap OHV coverage quotes online that will change your mind.

Registering a Trailer or Boat

In order to register a used boat or a trailer that weighs 1,999 pounds or less, you must bring all of the following documents:

  • One proof of ownership:
    • Signed bill of sale with VIN number and vehicle information
    • Prior registration and bill of sale
    • Dealer invoice
    • Out-of-state title, car registration or Manufacturer's Statement of Origin
  • One proof of empty weight:
    • Weight slip
    • Dealership paperwork indicating weight
    • Weight indicated by registration, title or MOS

When registering a new boat or trailer of the same weight, you are required to bring:

  • One proof of ownership:
    • Manufacturer's Statement of Origin
    • Title
  • One proof of sales price and tax paid:
    • Invoice from dealer
    • FL Trailer Sales Tax Statement

Moving to Another State

Keep in mind that if you choose to leave the state of Florida, you will have to return your license plates and transfer your vehicle registration with your new state's Department of Motor Vehicles office. While the necessary documentation varies from state to state, you can expect to have to bring proof of identity, Social Security, newly established residence, and if you are a non-U.S. citizen, legal presence.

Reviews of How to Register a Vehicle in Florida

I purchased a car in Rhode Island, 1992 Mitsubishi 3000GT. RI does not title cars greater than 10 years-old. I retired from the military and moving back to Florida. How can I get the car registered in Florida. I can get a letter from RI DMV stating this fact.

Our Florida car was involved in an accident up in Connecticut and is beyond repair. We purchased a brand new car from a Massachusetts new car dealership. We handed them the Florida tag and they said they will process the paperwork. We put insurance on the new car and they have done everything else by mail and it's been over a week and we still can't take delivery of the new car. Isn't there a process where the dealership just notifies FLDMV of the sale and transfer by phone or online? Then we can drive away and collect the paperwork when it arrives at a later date? Also, FLDMV in Volusia County was sent a pre-paid FedEx envelope to expedite the transfer but notified the dealer that they refused to use the postage paid envelope. Please tell me that there must be a more modern way to do this than such an ancient system. Thank you for your help. Ron Z.

I'm acquiring an automobile with a Florida title and would like to register it as a non-resident. I currently live in New York, have a license from the State of New York and travel back and forth. I want to have an automobile when I'm there. What is the protocol for this procedure?

I am a Florida resident currently living in Germany. I am heading to South Dakota and want to register my vehicles in Florida. Do I need to register my vehicles in person or can I do it on line since I have had previous vehicles registered in Florida?

I live overseas (military) and have a US spec vehicle purchased in 2005 (2004 model) and have driven overseas only. If I ship this now 10 yr old vehicle (95K miles) back to USA and register it in Florida, what Taxes/Fees must I pay in order to title/register it with Florida plates...? Is there a sales tax on the used vehicle since I purchase it & have only driven it overseas?

I gifted a car that is titled, registered, insured and licensed in the state of florida just now to my daughter. She is moving with her husband (military) to New Mexico in 2 weeks. Should she register, insure, license the car in florida before moving or do so when she arrives in New Mexico. Can I can keep the insurance and registration going on it (if she's just holding the title until she presents in New Mexico).

I moved from Vancouver BC Canada to Florida and I brought my 2010 Ford Mustang with me, do you know how much is the registration fees?

I have a similar situation. My mom in TX is gifting me a financed car with the title in her name. What plates must the vehicle have? TX or FL? She is buying the car Wednesday. Someone please help!!!

We bought a car from a dealership; they switched the plates from our old car to our new car and we were on our way. Two weeks after purchase, and before the hardcopy was in our hands, we were ticketed for not carrying the registration in the car. We received the registration hard copy one month to the date of sale. How can one defend in court not having the required registration, when the state codified the process the dealership and citizen must take to register? Any insights would be appreciated. Peace.

I made the transfer of the title of my new car on March 15, I received the registration the same day but I'm still waiting for the Auto Title to arrive, how long does it take?

She will not be relocating. She is the only person on the CA registration as well as the loan. Is she able to register the vehicle in FL even though she is a CA resident?

I am a student here in Florida and my father just purchased me a vehicle in NJ and I trying to see if I could register the car here and then bring the vehicle, or how may I bring the vehicle here then?

I live in Wis and i bought and am still paying for a car for my daughter in Florida, how do I register it in her name in florida while I continue to own the car

same question

Our case is similar. Our new car was just purchased in Washington State, will be delivered soon in New York City and we would like to drive it to Florida since we are Florida permanent residents and I have a Florida Driver's License.

We would have temporary plates on it (provided from the dealer) and are prepared to pay whatever Florida fees/taxes are required once we bring the car down and register it.

What do we do? simply drive it down to Florida and go directly to the Tax Collector's Office?

I am a Canadian citizen with a seasonal Florida home. I wish to purchase a vehicle to leave in FL so that I can drive it while I am here. Do I need a FL drivers license to purchase, register and insure a vehicle in Florida?

You might want to rethink. FL registration is pricey and the insurance is high (twice as high as South Carolina) This is mostly due to illegals driving with no insurance and fake registration stickers.

I I am a Canadian citizen with a seasonal Florida home I have a vehicle that I bought in

Canada 20 years ago. which has been at my home in Florida for over a year. not licenced

Can I register it in Florida, and tag it so that I can drive it while in Florida. .Do I need a Florida drivers licence. I have the original ownership.and know I need proof of insurance

what else do I need

I am wondering how you registered your Canadian vehicle in Florida. I too have an older Mercedes with Ontario registration that I have left at my Florida residence and would like to LICENCE in the state of Florida. I have made repeated trips to Naples and this morning the motor vehicle inspector informs me that I require a customs broker in order to complete the registration. How did you resolve this issue. The other factor being that my speedometer is in kilometers only.

I saw your post on DMV about plateting your vehicle from Ontario Plates to Florida Plates, I too am interested in doing this?

I didnt see an answer anywhere to your question, I was wondering if you were ever able to put Florida plates on your Ontario vehicle

can you email me at and let me know how you went about doing that, so I can get florida plates on my truck..

thank you so much

Vehicle registration


I have purchased a Low Speed Vehicle and want to know what I have to do to register it for the road. I have the insurance. I want to transfer my car plates to the low speed vehicle. Also, where do I go and do I have to have the vechicle with me.

Thank you

I also live in another state and keep a car at my house in florida can I register the car there, the car is there year round? Thanks Ed

Ed, you can register it in Florida with the applicable fees, however you will also need to insure the car in Florida as well to get the car registered. The insurance would come first.

I lived in Florida in the 80"s,since then i moved to Pa. Will i have to go through all the licensing and registration processes a person moving there for the first time will? Also do they have discounted tags for people on Social Security and low income as does Pa.?

I am getting many conflicting answers. I live in NJ have a valid Jersey DL. We recently purchase a home in Florida and would like to put a car there for when we visit instead of renting all the time. Can I insure and register the car to my Florida property and still have a NJ license or do I have to register and insure it up here even though it will be in Florida 365 days a year?

I live in Va have a valid Va DL. We recently purchase a home in Florida and would like to put a car there for when we visit instead of renting all the time. Can I insure and register the car to my Florida property and still have a Va license or do I have to register and insure it up here even though the car will be in Florida the entire year?

I have a weekend home in Florida but live in NJ. May I register a car in Florida [ transfer registration from NJ ]

I have a florida drivers license addressed in Melbourne Florida. Am I able to register my vehicle in another county in florida as long as I stay in the state of Florida? Or am I required to register the vehicle in the Brevard County. I would like to purchase a vehicle from another state and get it to Jacksonville in order to get it titled/tag in order to drive it home.

Most states provide a temporary registration to bring your vehicle home to register. You will have to insure it before you can drive it but the temp registrations are usually 10 to 14 days

I am trying to figure this out for my employer. How do you register a leased vehicle from Texas that is now in Connecticut? My employer has property in Florida and would like to register this car in Florida. He is a Connecticut resident. Thank you. PS Can this be on online or does he need to go in person?

How many days after you buy a used car from an individual in Florida do you have to get it registered in my name and the title transfered?

How do we go about downloading and printing of our car title now that the loan is paid off? I understand that the title is in electronic form in Florida, and I would like a hard copy.

I now live in another state and have paid off my car that I purchased when I lived in FLL. How do I get a copy of the electronic title?

Go to and on the top center of the page is an image of a mouse with a drop down menu next to it. In that menu select "print your electronic title". Costs about $2.50 and takes less than a week in most cases.

I have a question about if I got a van given to me by a friend and I am wondering if the price for the title and what not would change based on whether or not i got it for free?
