If you're moving to Florida from another state, one of the things you need to take care of is registering your vehicle in Florida. Here's what you need to know about out-of-state car registration in Florida.
To register your car in Florida, you need to be a resident of the state. Florida law defines a resident as someone who has established a physical presence in the state with the intent to reside in Florida on a permanent or indefinite basis. You'll need to provide proof of your Florida residency, such as a Florida driver's license or ID card, utility bills, or a lease or mortgage agreement.
If you own your car outright, you'll need to transfer the title to Florida before you can register your car. If you have a loan on your car, the lender will hold the title until you pay off the loan. In that case, you'll need to provide the lender's contact information to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV).
Florida requires all out-of-state vehicles to pass a vehicle identification number (VIN) inspection before they can be registered in the state. The inspection verifies that the VIN on your car matches the one on your title or registration. You can get the inspection done at any DHSMV office or an authorized service provider.
Florida law requires all drivers to carry minimum levels of car insurance coverage. You'll need to provide proof of insurance when you register your car. The minimum coverage requirements in Florida are:
$10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP)
$10,000 in property damage liability (PDL)
The cost of registering your car in Florida depends on several factors, such as the weight of your car, the length of your registration, and whether you want a specialty license plate. You can expect to pay around $85 to register your car in Florida, plus any additional fees for specialty plates or other services.
