Motor Vehicle Titles & Registrations
A certificate of title is the proof of ownership to a motor vehicle in the state of Florida.
When you purchase a new motor vehicle, bring a motor vehicle into the state, or at any time the ownership of the motor vehicle changes, you must transfer ownership into your name.

Motor vehicles, vessels, mobile homes and trailers are issued registrations to prove that license taxes and fees for the current registration period have been paid.
Registrations may consist of a license plate, a decal, and a registration certificate and are to remain with the registered owner.
If you are moving to Florida, you must register your vehicle in Florida within 10 days of establishing residency.
