How Much Does It Cost to Register a Car from California in Florida?

If you're looking to register a car from California in the Sunshine State, there are a few things you need to be aware of. First, you'll need to pay a registration fee in person at your local Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV). This fee is mandatory for all vehicles that are transferred from another state or purchased new in Florida. However, if you're transferring the title of a car to a newly purchased car, you'll be exempt from this fee.

In addition to the registration fee, you'll also need to provide your vehicle inspection number and odometer reading. This is required by Florida law and must be certified if you're bringing a vehicle from another state or buying a new car in Florida. You'll also need to apply for the car title at the same time as the car's registration. If 20 calendar days have elapsed since you requested the registration and you still haven't received it in the mail, you can request information about a replacement lost in transit by going to a local service center or by calling Customer Service at (850) 617-2000. The complete set of vehicle registration tests includes a metal plate, a registration certificate (which must be carried with you at all times) and a registration sticker included in your registration certificate.

Depending on the county, you may receive full registration documentation at DHSMV offices or it may be mailed later.

The cost of registering a used car
