How to sign your Florida Vehicle Title

Be sure to sign and print your name exactly as spelled on the front of your title. Avoid erasures, scribbles, and strike-throughs. If your Florida title shows a lien or a bank name printed on the front, then your title will need to be signed off by the lien holder or have a separate lien release letter.

  • On the front of the title, sign where it reads “Signature of Seller.”
  • On the front of the title, print your name(s) where it reads “Printed Name of Seller.”

The Division of Motorist Services has implemented an electronic lien and titling system (e-title) designed to assist lien holders as well as vehicle owners. You do not need to request a paper title prior to trading your vehicle with a Florida dealership. If you are selling your vehicle, rather than trading it with a Florida dealership, you will need to request a paper title be printed in order to transfer ownership to the purchaser. You can obtain a paper title online here: Obtain a paper title
