Titles

Certificate of Title

A Certificate of Title for a vehicle, vessel or mobile home is a legal document, available in paper form or electronically, that establishes a person or entity as the legal owner of a vehicle, vessel or mobile home in Florida. Generally speaking, most vehicles, vessels and mobile homes must be titled in Florida; mopeds, motorized bicycles and trailers which weigh less than 2,000 pounds do not require a title.

You must register and title your vehicle, vessel or mobile home when you:

  • Purchase a vehicle, vessel or mobile home.
  • Bring a vehicle, vessel or mobile to Florida from out of state.
  • Any time the ownership of the vehicle, vessel or mobile home changes.

Titles with Joint Ownership

Vehicles, vessels and mobile homes may be owned jointly by two or more owners in Florida. Joined owners will be indicated on the title certificate by either “and” or “or”.

Electronic Titles

Electronic titles provide the same information as paper titles, and the application process for an electronic title is the same as for paper titles. You do not need to request a paper title in order to trade your vehicle to a dealership; however, you will need to obtain a paper title in order to sell your vehicle to an individual (private sale).
