Vehicle Registration / Tags

In the state of Florida, a motor vehicle is required by law to be registered within ten (10) days of the owner either becoming employed, placing children in public school, or establishing residency.

Registering your motor vehicle goes hand in hand with the titling process.

The 12-month registration period begins the first day of the owners birth month.

Company owned vehicles use the month of June.

Full amount is charged for the registration period regardless of when during the registration period the vehicle is registered.
