The Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Department manages services for vehicle titles, registration, plates, driver's licenses, and identification cards, and it also oversees the Florida Highway Patrol. Each county has Driver License and Motor Vehicle Service Centers. There are three types of offices: Driver License Services Only, Motor Vehicle Services Only, and Dual Service Centers, which offer both driver's license and motor vehicle services.
To register a vehicle in Florida, you will need the original title and proof of insurance. If you are registering a vehicle from out-of-state, you will also need to bring in proof of identification, VIN verification, and complete an Application for a Certificate of Title with/without Registration. Additionally, you can apply for plates and register farm equipment, recreational vehicles, and vessels at a Motor Vehicle Services Center.
To apply for a Florida driver's license, you may have to take up to four tests, including a hearing test, a vision screening, a 50-question knowledge exam, and a driving test. You can apply for commercial and non-commercial driver licenses, including learner's restricted and motorcycle licenses. You can also go to the office to report a lost or stolen license, replace a license, or apply for a state identification card. You will need to bring proper identification, show proof of residence and Social Security Number, and provide evidence that you completed the required coursework. Minors also must bring a notarized consent form from a parent or guardian, or the adult must sign the consent form in person.
