New to Florida – What to Know About Driving

I recently discovered, after living here for 19 years, that there are different times in which Florida drivers renew their car registration. If your vehicle is under 5,000 lbs, you will renew on your birthday. If your vehicle is over 5,000 lbs, you renew in December. If your car is a company vehicle, then you renew in June.

If you are looking to move to South Florida, then you will want to be aware of how to become a resident. When you arrive, you will want to change your license to a Florida license and obtain a Florida registration for your vehicle. The state requires that all new residents register within 10 days of establishing residency or within 10 days of registering for public school.

There will be a lot to take care of during the move to South Florida, and the Restivo Team would love to help. We will find you a new home, walk you through the purchase process as well as other things such as obtaining your license. We make the transition a smooth one and can’t wait to get you into your new home. Contact us today.
