Nope. Will need to get VIN verified by notary or rep from DMV. Then good to go.

Thank you for the replies! I did not think so but better to ask first!

One thing you should check. Florida requires a displacement on their titles, while some states don't. If it doesn't, may want to bring an affidavit stating the displacement. It will save you 30 min of them having to look up "similar titles."

Bring a bill of sale in addition to the title. I've been asked for those while registering my last bike and jetski.

You can also call the Sheriff (or other local law enforcement) and they'll come to you to do the VIN verification. Have the form (you can get it from the county tax office or probably online, too) printed and ready so that the officer just has to verify and sign off; it only takes a few minutes.

Probably the only time I ever called the police when I lived in FL.

I have bought 4 bikes from private sellers that were from out of Florida. The VIN will have to be verified by you hauling the bike to the DMV or the much easier way of having a officer come by your house. just call the non emergency number and tell them you want a officer to come by and verify the VIN . my guy signed off even though I was tagging a KTM XC-W 450....hehe

OK, I didn't read this close enough the first time...so are you saying you bought it from a guy that lives in florida, he bought it from someone out of state but he never transferred it into his name and now he has sold it to you? or did he have it in his name when he lived elsewhere and then moved to Florida with it and has never tagged /titled it here?

the previous mentioned form is basically a check of the VIN to make sure the bike is not stolen coming in from another state, you would think if it comes up clean you would be fine. if the other guy never put it in his own name then i'm sure he never paid the sales tax.
