Vehicles must have a valid registration to operate on Florida roads. Customers may renew their vehicle or vessel for a period of one to two years and may renew a registration up to three months in advance of the registration expiration. Vehicle or vessel registrations expire at midnight on the first owner’s birth date unless the owner is a business.
The registration decal must be placed in the square space provided in the upper right-hand corner of the Florida license plate.
Drivers who are new to Florida must register and title their vehicle in the state of Florida within 30 days of the owner either becoming employed, placing children in public school or establishing residency in Florida.
