Not a Manatee County resident?  Effective 7/24/17, Out-of-County residents needing to process title and/or registration transactions for vehicles, boats, and mobile homes can only be served at First Manatee South County Tag Agency, located at 5756 14th St W, Bradenton.

If your bank or lease company holds the title to your car/boat, you may qualify for the "Registration Only" process.  This allows you to purchase a Florida license plate/decal while your vehicle/boat remains titled in another state.

For complete details and requirements, view our Registration Only publication.
