The Tax Collector serves as the agent for the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles for titling and registering all motorized vehicles, boats and mobile homes (commercial and private), including motorcycles and mopeds (registrations only). The Tax Collector’s office also issues disabled parking placards.
New residents should register their vehicle(s) and obtain a Florida license plate within 10 days of establishing legal residency, accepting employment or upon placement of a child in school. Automobiles and trucks must have at least $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) insurance and at least $10,000 property damage liability (PDL) insurance. Registrations of privately owned vehicles and long-term leased vehicles are valid until midnight on the registrant’s birthday. A delinquent fee is charged if the registration is not renewed by the 10th of the following month.
The Tax Collector sends courtesy reminder notices in advance of the registrant’s renewal date. Non-receipt of the notice does not relieve the registrant from their responsibility to renew on time or exempt them from paying the delinquent fee upon renewal.
Take your proof of Florida insurance, along with the original title, to your county Tax Collector. Please visit, www.pbctax.com or call (561)355-2264 with any questions.
