New Vehicle Never Titled


All new vehicles are required to have a Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin (MCO), which must be properly completed by a licensed dealer for transfer to the buyer. To obtain a Florida title, the MCO must be filled out completely and attached to the title application, Form HSMV-82040. The information must include the owner’s complete name and Florida address, date of birth, sex, driver license number, a complete description of the vehicle, and any lien to be recorded. Sales tax will be collected, if applicable. Proof of Florida insurance is required for registering the vehicle.
