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.

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.

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

Purpose of the form

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 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 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 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.

Once the transaction has been completed, the Buyer should notify the new acquisition to the tax collector’s office. After this, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will cancel the registration of the vehicle for the Seller’s name and register the vehicle under the name of its new owner. Please bear in mind that a sales tax payment will be required at this time. The new owner will only have 30 days to register the vehicle under his/her name after the sale. After this time period there will be a penalty fee due to the late transfer.



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

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.

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.

Requirements for Older and Senior Drivers

Military personnel - Requirements

All Military personnel can apply for the renewal of their driver's license up to 18 months before its expiration date. The state of Florida will allow some exemptions for those soldiers who are outside the State and cannot apply for the online renovation. There are also other types of extensions that may apply under certain circumstances. The DMV will allow the License’s validity to be extended for 90 days after its expiration date. This will be permitted until the driver comes back to Florida to reside. Before completing the online application for the renewal, please contact the FLHSMV for more information.



DMV Offices in 658 Highway 60 West

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, 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.

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.
