Electronically Maintained Titles

The Division of Motorist Services has implemented an electronic lien and titling system (e-title) designed to assist lienholders as well as vehicle owners.

Electronically maintaining the title to your vehicle eliminates the risk of losing it and having to pay title fees to obtain a duplicate. It is also an effective fraud deterrent because potential thieves will not have access to your title.

If the lien on your vehicle has been satisfied and the title is electronically maintained, the Department is encouraging owners to maintain their titles electronically. Customers may still request that a paper title be printed at any time. Titles are mailed to the address reflected on the owner’s motor vehicle record and are generally mailed within two (2) days of receipt of the request. To request a paper title, you may use the Division of Motorist Services website provided below to submit your request. If you wish to obtain a paper title immediately, many tax collector offices offer same day title printing for $10.00.

You do not need to request a paper title prior to trading your vehicle with a Florida dealership.

If you are selling your vehicle, rather than trading it with a Florida dealership, you will need to request a paper title be printed in order to transfer ownership to the purchaser.
