About

 

Florida law requires all motor vehicles to be registered within ten days of the owner becoming employed, placing children in public school, or establishing residency in Florida. A registration is the evidence of paying the registration tax on a motor vehicle and includes a metal license plate, serial number validation decal and registration certificate. Registration must be renewed annually during the owner’s birth month. The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV), Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is the agency that oversees vehicle registrations in Florida. The DMV works with the counties to issue tags and titles and ensure that vehicles throughout the state are in compliance with registration codes. The DMV also collects fees under the International Registration Plan, the International Fuel Tax Agreement, and the Fuel Use Tax Program, which all ensure that motor carriers pay for their usage of roadways and fuel.

 

The DHSMV produces annual revenue reports to the Florida Legislature. In this report, the number of registrations and total revenue from the DMV are documented. The most recent Revenue Report is available on the web at http://www.hsmv.state.fl.us/html/safety.html.

 

Detailed tables contain the number of registered vehicles on an annual basis. The lag time of updating this indicator is approximately six months.
