Florida Bill of Sale

Everyone is familiarized with the paperwork one must go through when purchasing a new vehicle, there are a lot of forms to comply. During the last couple of years there have been some incidents when selling/buying a vehicle. Fraud, theft or simply mistakes are around the corner, and have led people to lose more money and waste their time trying to fix things up.

In Florida, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) highly recommend that, at the moment of buying or selling your vehicle, the owner and the buyer protect themselves by completing the Bill of Sale Document. This form is not legally required by the DMV officers, and in any case it is a replacement of the Title transfer, but this document works as a backup form. The Bill of Sale protects both parts of the transaction: The Buyer and the Seller.

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

At the moment of the sale, it is necessary that the current owner of the vehicle is the first one to complete this paper and sign it, before the buyer.

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.

What are the Benefits for the Seller part?

The Bill of Sale form protects the seller of the vehicle in any case where any infraction or new ticket arrives from the authorities and once the vehicle is driven by the new owner. It works as a proof of non responsibility over the vehicle.

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

What are the Benefits for the Buyer part?

The Bill of Sale also protects the buyer of the vehicle in case there is any infraction or ticket of the vehicle from the previous owner. It is a proof of non responsibility over the vehicle from the date of purchase backwards.

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

You should observe some exemptions, when the renewal will not be possible, for example: in the case where a license has been suspended, cancelled or revoked; or due to eligibility, unsolved traffic violations. In all of these scenarios, it is possible that the DMV requests you to comply with a new training and/or to get a brand new license.

The are different ways to renew your license in Florida:

Renewal Online

With the exception of the Commercial Drivers License, the rest of licenses can be renewed online. This is the most convenient, easy and fastest way to renew the license only available for American citizens or permanent residents. The only restrictions to bear in mind at the time to choose this option is 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 chosen option in most of the cases. All you need to do is to schedule an appointment at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) service’s center and bring your paperwork.

It is probable that you may have to pass a vision test (If applicable) and 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.

4445 Lafayette St., Suite 107 Offices

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

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

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.
