Page Summary: Renew Registration

Renewing Your Vehicle Registration in Florida

You can renew your license plates up to 3 months early by telephone, online or in person. If you are renewing online, you should take a few moments and add emergency contact information to your driver’s license record. The State of Florida lets you renew your registration once a year, or every two years and you must provide proof of insurance every year.

Renew in Person

To renew the old-fashioned way, head to a county tax collector office with your present registration or renewal notice, proof of insurance, and your payment.

Another individual may renew your registration for you, providing you give them all the necessary documents.

Many  Tax Collector Offices have an express lane for simple transactions. Check online for your local tax collectors offices, hours and telephone numbers.

Renew by Telephone

Call (866) 467-3639 (GO RENEW) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week  to renew your registration using the automated phone system. Make sure you have your driver’s license, existing registration, insurance card and a credit or debit card ready when you call.

You'll need to pay an additional convenience fee of $2.90 for using the service, however. You may pay with your Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card, or American Express credit or debit card.

Allow seven to 10 business days for the state to process your request. If you haven't received your renewal by then, stop by a county tax collector office. You won't have to pay your registration fee again.
