So, here is what you should bring.

  • Vin/Odometer Verification Form (notarized)
    Title
    Proof of Insurance
    Conversion Affidavit
    Drivers License
    Weight Slip
    Patience (optional but recommended)
    $$$

Weight Slip Affidavit http://www.flhsmv.gov/dmv/forms/BTR/82105.pdf
Conversion Affidavit - There is sample wording in TL-13 page 5

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the information. Who did you go through for your insurance if you dont mind me asking?

I am finding out quickly that this is a pain. I tried my local agent and they cant get a commercial for private use policy in Florida. I tried Chars number. She doesnt work there anymore but I left them my info, and a fellow named Mike is supposed to get back with me.

I got his name wrong but Mark got me a quote for $295 a year! It's only good for a 100 mile radius but thats fine until I finish the conversion. Hopefully getting my title and tag tomorrow.

Ah, that's what I wanted to see. Would an old car plate work also, do you know? An obsolete plate?


Actually for our last out-of-state car we were unable to find an old plate but the DMV person was able to give us a good discount anyway because of our status in the system. Not sure what that status was, but we had many vehicles previously registered in Florida.

When you don't need a plate anymore you turn it in within a set amount of time for a "tag credit". Can't use old obsolete plates. Wish I could I've got pile of em!

Yeah, that's the new rule. But I think they can look up your old vehicles and possibly transfer over an old tag or create a replacement tag (with new number) for pre-existing tag.



Anyway, if this might apply to anyone registering in Florida, talk to the DMV and see what they can do for you. It never hurts to ask. Usually.

I just spoke with the Lee County Tax Collector's office and she told me that they cannot register an unconverted school bus as an RV until it has been fully converted and inspected by the "Palmetto Inspection Branch".

With that said, in order for me to get a temporary registration to go to Mississippi to pick up my bus, she said I needed the following:
1) Title
2) Driver's License/ID
3) Florida Insurance Policy with the VIN for the bus on it. She said they didn't require a specific type (Commercial, RV, etc), that all they need is something with the VIN on it.
4) Notarized VIN verification http://www.flhsmv.gov/dmv/forms/btr/82042.pdf
5) Weight Certification http://www.flhsmv.gov/dmv/forms/BTR/82105.pdf

Once the bus is fully converted, they can inspect it and then issue an RV designated title and registration.

That is interesting ... registration and titling in Florida does not require inspection but registering it as an RV does? Something is amiss here.
