Florida Bill of Sale

It is known that at the time to purchase a new vehicle, there is a lot of paperwork to go through. During the last few years there have been some incidents when selling/buying a car. There have been cases of fraud, theft or simply mistakes that have led people to lose extra money and waste their time.

When buying or selling a car, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) highly recommends that the owner and the new buyer protect themselves by filling up the Bill of Sale Document. Even though this paper is not legally required, and in any case it replaces the Title transfer, it is a very good choice to fill up the Bill of Sale to protect both parts of the transaction: The Buyer and the Seller.

The official name is “Notice of Sale and/or Bill of Sale for a Motor Vehicle, Mobile Home, Off-Highway Vehicle or Vessel”, and it can be downloaded from the DHSMV website. This paper is a very good backup to avoid possible problems in the near future.

What is the purpose of this paper?

The Bill of Sale is beneficial for both of the parts. It protects the Seller and the Buyer during a certain period of time. This paper works as a proof of the transaction made and the change of responsibilities form one part to the other one.

It is necessary that the actual owner of the vehicle is the first one to fill up this paper and sign it, before the buyer at the moment of the sale.

To complete the form correctly, the seller must include the Vehicle details, the Certificate of title number, the current kilometer the vehicle has made, the personal information of both parts, the price of the vehicle and the current date.

Benefits for the Seller of the Vehicle

The Bill of Sale protects the seller of the vehicle in case there is any infraction or new ticket once the vehicle is driven by the new owner. It is a proof of non responsibility over the vehicle.

Once the transaction has been completed, the seller should notify the tax collector’s office, to let them know about the sale. After this, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will cancel the registration of the vehicle under the Seller’s name and wait for the buyer’s notification to register the vehicle under the new owner’s name.

Benefits for Buyers

The Bill of Sale also protects the buyer of the vehicle after the purchase and from that date on. In the case any infraction or old ticket of the vehicle is found at the time the vehicle was the responsibility of the previous owner, the Bill of Sale will prove that the responsibility over the vehicle at that time was over the previous owner.

Once the transaction has been completed, you should notify the new acquisition to the tax collector’s office. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will receive your notification and proceed to cancel the registration of the vehicle under the Seller’s name and register the vehicle under your name. Please keep in mind that you will have to pay a sales tax payment. After purchasing the vehicle, you will have only 30 days to register the vehicle under your name. After this period of time, you will be punished with a penalty fee due to the late transfer.



Drivers License Renewal in 215 E McCollum Ave

The Florida Drivers License will be valid for a period no longer than 8 years, and it will expire on the birthday of the driver. In this State it is allowed the renewal of the license up to 18 months before its expiration date.

There are some situations where the renewal will not be possible due to eligibility, traffic violations not solved in court, or cases of suspended, cancelled or revoked licenses. In this scenario, it is possible that the driver must comply with a new training and/or start over step by step to achieve a brand new license.

The are different ways to renew your license in Florida:

Online renewal

There is an exception applied to the Commercial Drivers License that does not allow its renovation online. Renewing the license online is the most easy, fast and convenient way to do it. This service is only available for American citizens or permanent US residents. When choosing this option, please bear in mind that it is not allowed to use this way if the last renewal was made online, by mail or over the phone.

Renewal in Person

This is the winning option in most of the cases. All you need to do is to make an appointment at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) service’s center and bring all the required paperwork.

You may also have to pass a vision test (If applicable) and then, you’ll have to surrender your expired Driver’s license.

Once you attend your appointment, the officer will require all the paperwork, including your ID, proof of address and if you have changed your name, two different proofs of your new name. Bear in mind that if you have not renewed your driver's license in person since January 1st, 2010, you will need to bring one form of primary ID, two proofs of your current address and your social security number.

Real ID and the Driver’s License.

Starting from October 1st 2021, all the renewal of the drivers licenses in Florida will be issued complying with the Real ID standards. If you need to renew your license within this period of time, bear in mind that you will have to do the renovation in person. To avoid double paperwork and assure the renovation under the new security standards from the Real ID, ask the advice from a FLHSMV’s officer.

DMV Offices in 215 E McCollum Ave

The Department of Motorized Vehicles offers a wide range of possible communication channels to help and assist citizens across the State of Florida.

In the last couple of years, a restructuring plan for the office's location across the State has been necessary due to some of the DMV offices outside Miami, Broward and Volusia having suffered a depreciation of its services.

For this reason, the DMV focused their effort on centralizing the services in some places and merging the services with the tax collectors offices in other places where the demand was lower. It is necessary to mention that despite this, the DMV offices have never lost their quality and speed at the time to manage the citizens' formalities.
