Here's a comprehensive guide on registering your car with the Florida DMV or courier tag/registration service. For your convenience, we've streamlined the entire procedure.
- Preparing Your Documents
Verify the validity of your driver's license in Florida. If you want to register an automobile in Florida, you'll need a current, unexpired Florida ID card. In the event that you just relocated to Florida from another state, be sure to get your driving privileges transferred.
In order to legally own an automobile, you must be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver's license.
- Make a Payment on Your Auto Insurance Policy
The second stage in registering a vehicle is to secure car insurance for the vehicle or cars you intend to register. This is sometimes overlooked. Without evidence of insurance, you will not be allowed to register your car.

- To get your car's title, bring it or apply for it.
To register your automobile, bring the car's title if it's already in your name. Do not apply for the registration and license plates separately in Florida if you don't want to do so. In order to get a car title, you simply need to fill out an application at a local registration courier office.
- Your license plate's registration sticker should be located in the upper-right corner.
Upon receiving your registration, you'll receive a little sticker with the year inscribed on it. To avoid a traffic stop, place the sticker on the right-hand side of your license plate. Because only the back license plate is required in Florida, you'll only need one sticker.
- Your vehicle's registration should be placed in plain sight.
Put your genuine registration in your vehicle so you can display it if you are stopped. Most people put theirs in the glove box of their car, but it may be kept just about anyplace that is both secure and dry.
- Pay All Fees That Are Due
You'll be able to pay your car registration, title, plate, and tax expenses at a courier tag agency. This is the final step in the process of registering. Online renewals of your registration will be available in the future.
