In-person FL registration replacement
Let’s now have a look at the traditional, if not slowest, method of getting a duplicate of your registration, which is planning an in-person visit.
To complete this procedure, go to your local Tax Collector agency or motor vehicle services, and pay the registration replacement fee.
You may think that’s easy but let’s us remind you that those agencies receive a large amount of people in their offices. Not to mention the endless lines that people are confronted with.
DMV experts always recommend drivers to book an appointment before heading to their offices, otherwise you won’t be getting the best experience out of it.
Never say we didn’t warn you!
If you are driving there, you better plan ahead and find a decent parking area. The number of people visiting the DMV could keep you flabbergasted and you shouldn’t play against the odds.
And last but not least, we want to let you know that this process and fees vary depending upon the agency you visit and the county you live in.
So always plan ahead by contacting your local agency and make sure you have everything you need in hand to avoid planning second visits.
That would be so not convenient!
