Florida Certificate of Registration

The Certificate of Registration and validation decal are issued by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

  • The registration and decal are obtained by submitting the proper application and fee to your county tax collector's office. Additional information is available and application forms may be downloaded on the Internet at: www.flhsmv.gov/resources/forms/.
  • Fees for registration are based on a vessel's length.

The Certificate of Registration must be carried on board the vessel whenever the vessel is operated.
