In the state of Florida, a motor vehicle or vessel is required by law to be registered within ten days of the owner either becoming employed, placing children in public school, or establishing residency. Registering your motor vehicle goes hand in hand with the titling process. You do not necessarily need a Florida Drivers License to register your car or vessel, an out-of-state license or a U.S. or foreign passport is acceptable.
