Getting a semi truck plate in Florida is a relatively straightforward process. The first step is to make sure the vehicle meets the state’s requirements in terms of size, weight, and features.
All vehicles must also carry the appropriate insurance and registration documents. Depending on the type of license plate you are seeking, you may need to provide additional documentation as well.
The next step is to choose which type of license plate you would like for your semi truck. In Florida, there are two primary types of plates for commercial vehicles: permanent and temporary.
Permanent plates are designed for vehicles that will remain in the state for more than 30 days. Temporary plates are designed for vehicles that will be in the state for less than 30 days.
Once you have determined which type of license plate you need, you can begin the application process. You will need to submit an Application for Commercial Vehicle License Plates (Form HSMV 83039) along with supporting documents such as proof of insurance, proof of registration, and proof of ownership. In some cases, additional documents may be required depending on the type of license plate being requested.
Once your application has been reviewed and approved by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (HSMV), you will receive a confirmation notification. At this point, you can expect your semi truck plate to arrive within two weeks. When it does arrive, it will include all necessary information including expiration date and plate number.
Getting a semi truck plate in Florida requires that applicants meet certain criteria regarding size, weight, features, insurance coverage and registration documents. After submitting an application along with any supporting documents needed, applicants should expect their plates to arrive within two weeks from when their application is approved by HSMV.
