On December 1, 2023, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles issued a memo to all law enforcement agencies regarding the use of dealer license plates. The memo clarifies that dealers may operate vehicles on the highways of Florida at any time as long as the vehicle is in inventory and for sale or while being operated in connection with such dealer’s business. We recommend printing this letter (Use of Dealer License Plates Dec 2023 LEA Memo (1) and placing it in the glove compartment of any vehicle being driven on a Florida dealer plate.
