HB 763 — Motor Vehicle Registration
by Rep. Rogers and others (SB 1068 by Senator Joyner)
This summary is provided for information only and does not represent the opinion of any Senator, Senate Officer, or Senate Office.
Prepared by: Transportation Committee (TR)
This bill specifies a vehicle may not be operated on the roads of this state after expiration of the renewal period, or, for a natural person, at midnight on the owner’s birthday, which clarifies when the motor vehicle registration expires for an individual.
In addition, the bill authorizes a refund of the license taxes assessed in s. 320.08, F.S., to a motor vehicle registrant who has renewed a motor vehicle registration during the advance renewal period (up to three months before the actual registration period begins) and who surrenders the vehicle license plate before the end of the renewal period. Accordingly, this will extend the refund period beyond the advanced period to the end of the renewal period.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect July 1, 2012.
Vote: Senate 28-0; House 115-0
