Due to the unexpected events, and a breach of contract with our vendor for the motor vehicle renewal notices, the January reminder notices will unfortunately not be mailed.  These reminders are mailed as a courtesy to our residents.  This will not affect any future renewal notices, as we have corrected the issue.

As a reminder, you may renew your tags online, by going to, the Florida Highway Safety Motor Vehicles Official Website. 

If you visit our office to renew your tags, in order for us better serve you, please bring the current registrations for any tags you wish to renew.

I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 352-463-3178. Barbara Merritt CFC

Governor Rick Scott announced that Florida's law enforcement officers, first responders and utility workers will be able to enjoy license-free freshwater and saltwater fishing through June 30, 2018.  This is in recognition of their lifesaving work preparing and responding to Hurricane Irma.  The FWC will accept official first responder and utility workers' identification in lieu of a Florida fishing license during this period.  The Department of Environmental Protection is also offering free day-passes to Florida State Parks that can be used on an unlimited basis until October 2018 for all law enforcement officers, first responders and utility workers.
