    Default Transferring Ownership and Registering a Car

    My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: ILLINOIS / FLORIDA

    I will be moving from Illinois to Florida and I would like to register a car when I get there.
    What is the best course of action to transfter ownership of a car from my mother to me and registering it in FL?

    Would her signature on title with my name filled out as buyer + notarially signed bill of sale be enough?
    What is the cost of registering a car in State of Florida?

    Likely, the best course of action would be to transfer title in IL, get a temp tag and insurance, then transfer plates to FL when you get there. If IL requires personal property tax, I would wait until you have a FL address and avoid the tax.

    I would call up the Florida DMV or their website or email ... I would think what you are doing is correct but rules change, laws change etc...to be safe, just contact Florida DMV.

    The worst that will happen is they say "you need this, that or the other" .. luckily, its your mom's car so anything else needed could be sent by post to you, right?

    Read this and this.

    The simplest approach, since you presently live in Illinois, would seemingly be to complete the transfer of title in Illinois and then to transfer registration of the vehicle, already in your name, when you arrive in Florida.
