Florida ATV Registration Requirements & ORV Stickers

Florida residents are required to title their off-road vehicles through the HSMV. 

Off-road permits are required to ride on certain trails and state forests. 

To get a title and title decal for your ATV in Florida, you’ll need to visit your local county tax collector with the following:

  • Proof of ownership of the vehicle. 
  • Details of the ATV including year, make, VIN, and vehicle weight. 
  • Application for Certificate of Title (Form 82040). 
  • Payment for any taxes and title fees. 

Once you submit your application, you’ll receive a certificate of title and a title decal. 

The FL title decal will need to be placed on the left rear section of the ATV body. 

ROVs (Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle), should have their decals placed on a flat portion of the vehicle’s body on the left rear portion of the vehicle.
