Electronic Titles and Liens

On an electronic title, lien notifications and satisfactions are transmitted electronically between the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and the lienholder. When an electronic lien is satisfied, the title will then remain electronic until a request for paper title is received.

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 in most cases.
