ODOMETER DISCLOSURE

The odometer reading or mileage is required on most applications for Florida title.

Vehicles Less Than 20 Calendar Years Old 
(2011 Model Year or Newer)

When ownership changes on a vehicle less than 20 calendar years old (model year 2011 or newer), the seller must complete the title for transfer and disclose the current mileage at the time of sale. When there is no ownership change (transferring from out-of-state/out-of-country or requesting a duplicate title), the mileage needs to be declared by the current owner at time of application.

Vehicles 2010 Model Year or Older

Prior to January 1st, 2021, vehicles 10 years or older were allowed to have odometer exempted. Therefore, mileage on any vehicle with a model year of 2010 or older is currently eligible for odometer exemption.

If the mileage is not being recorded, the word "EXEMPT" should be written in the proper place on the title or application for title.  

Vehicles More Than 20 Calendar Years Old 
(2011 Model Year or Newer)

Effective January 1st, 2021, when ownership changes on a vehicle more than 20 years old (with a model year of 2011 or newer), recording mileage is optional. This means model year 2011 vehicles will become eligible for odometer exemption beginning in the year 2031.
