• RENEW A DRIVER LICENSE, REGISTRATION OR OBTAIN PAPER TITLE. The Division of Motorist Services has implemented an electronic lien and titling system (e-title) designed to assist leinholders as well as vehicle owners. Electronically maintaining the title to your vehicle eliminates the risk of losing it and having to pay title fees to obtain a duplicate. It is also an effective fraud deterrant because potential thieves will not have access to it. Consumers may still request the paper title be printed at any time. 
  • CONSUMER COMPLAINTS. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services functions as the state’s clearinghouse for consumer complaints. They assist consumers with information, protection and complaints regardless of whether they regulate the particular industry. 
  • CONSUMER SERVICES HOTLINE. For general questions or consumer program related topics, contact the toll-free Consumer Services Hotline at 800-HELP-FLA (800) 435-7352 or (850) 410-3800.
  • ATTORNEY GENERAL FRAUD HOTLINE. The Attorney General’s fraud hotline is (866) 966-7226 or (850) 414-3990.
