Florida Bill of Sale

When selling or buying a vehicle, you must be familiarized with the paperwork you must go through when doing the transaction, there are a lot of forms you must complete correctly. This last couple of years left some evidence of the most common incidents when selling or buying a vehicle. There are a lot of intentional or unintentional mistakes that can lead you to fraud or theft. One simple mistake can lead you to lose money and waste your time trying to fix things up.

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) highly recommends that, at the moment of buying or selling a vehicle, the owner and the buyer protect themselves by completing the Bill of Sale Document. This paper is not legally required by the DMV officers, and in any case it replaces the Title transfer, but it is a very good backup form, as the Bill of Sale protects 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. During a certain period of time it protects the Seller and the Buyer part. This form works as a proof of the transaction and the legal change of responsibilities from the seller to the buyer.

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 correctly complete the form, the seller must include all the Vehicle details, the Certificate of title number, the current kilometer count of the vehicle, the personal information of both parts, the vehicle`s price and the current date.

Benefits for the Seller of the Vehicle

The Bill of Sale form protects you as the seller of the vehicle in any case, for example: if any infraction or new ticket arrives to you after you sold the vehicle, you will have no responsibility towards those infractions. This form works as proof of non responsibility over the sold vehicle.

Once the purchase is completed, the seller must notify the tax collector’s office (DMV Office), to inform them about the sale. After this, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will proceed to cancel the registration of the vehicle under the Seller’s name and keep the vehicle on hold until the buyer’s notification arrives. Once everything is completed, they will register the vehicle under the new owner’s name.

Benefits for the Buyer of the Vehicle

The Bill of Sale also protects you as the buyer of the vehicle. After the purchase is completed and from that date forward. For example: if any infraction or old ticket of the vehicle arrives to you, but the date of those infractions are from the time you didn’t own the vehicle, the document will excuse you from the responsibility over those tickets. The Bill of Sale proves that the vehicle at that time was the responsibility of the previous owner.

When the transaction has been completed, the Buyer should notify the purchase to the tax collector’s office. After this, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will cancel the registration of the vehicle under the Seller’s name and register the vehicle under the new owner’s name. Bear in mind that in this stage of the purchase it will be required to pay the sales tax. If the Vehicle Registration, under the new owner, takes more than 30 days after the sale, it will be a penalty fee due to the late transfer.



Florida Drivers License Renewal

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

There are some exemptions, where the renewal will not be possible due to eligibility, unsolved traffic violations, or in the case where a license has been suspended, cancelled or revoked. In these different scenarios, it is possible that the DMV requests the driver to comply with a new training and/or to get a brand new license.

The State of Florida allows different ways to renew your license:

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 Personally

In most of the cases this is the chosen option. All the driver needs to do is to schedule an appointment at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) service’s center and bring all the necessary 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.

Offices in 3056 Crawfordville Highway

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

The last couple of years, there has been a depreciation of some of the DMV offices outside Miami, Broward and Volusia. For this reason there has been a restructuring of the office's location across the State.

They tried to centralize the services in some places and merge the services with the tax collectors offices in other places where the demand is lower. However, the offices of the DMV have never lost its quality and speed at the time to manage the citizens' formalities.
