Florida Electronic Temporary Registration (ETR)

Stay legal the smart way.

If you operate dealerships in the State of Florida, you need a reliable, low-cost solution for reporting temporary license plates and plate transfers to the Florida Highway, Safety and Motor Vehicles agency. DeskManager’s ETR tool does it all in-program and keeps you compliant at one of the lowest price points in the market.

Why Do I Need it?

Under Electronic Temporary Registration requirements, dealers operating in Florida must electronically report the issuance of temporary license plates to the Florida Highway, Safety and Motor Vehicles agency through an approved software vendor. Visit the Florida ETR website for more details. In 2010, another law was passed that requires dealers to electronically report the transfer of a metal plate from one vehicle to another.
