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.

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.

Purpose of the form

The Bill of Sale is beneficial for both parts, as it protects the Seller and the Buyer. This paper serves as a proof of the transaction made and the transfer of responsibilities form one part to the other one.

At the moment of the sale, 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.

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 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.

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.



Florida Drivers License Renewal

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.

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 State of Florida allows different ways to renew your license:

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

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.

Bear in mind that if you have not renewed your driver's license personally since January 1st, 2010, you will need to bring 1 form of primary ID, 2 proofs of your current address and your social security number. Once you attend to your appointment, the officer will require all the paperwork, including your ID, proof of address and if you have changed your name, 2 different proofs of your new name.

Real ID and the Driver’s License.

If you need to renew your license, keep in mind that you will have to do the renovation in person starting from October 1st 2021. From this day forward, all the renewal of the drivers licenses in Florida will be issued complying with the Real ID standards. To avoid double paperwork and assure the renovation is made under the new security standards from the Real ID. You may seek advice from a FLHSMV office.

Military personnel - Requirements

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.



1210 Offices

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.

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