How do you get a car dealer's license in Florida?

Here is a reprint of the Florida state page linked to the right:

In Florida, motor vehicle dealers are licensed and regulated by the Division of Motor Vehicles under Section 320.27 Florida Statutes.

The Law

Florida law states that any person, firm partnership, or corporation that buys, sells, offers for sale, displays for sale or deals in three or more motor vehicles in any 12-month period is presumed to be a motor vehicle dealer and must have an appropriate license issued by the State.

License Types

There are four classes of licenses issued to motor vehicle dealers. They are:

Independent Dealer--for a person dealing in used motor vehicles only. This license permits the licensee to transact business at retail or wholesale.

Franchise Dealer--allows the licensee to sell new motor vehicles under an agreement with a manufacturer. This license also permits the licensee to sell used motor vehicles.

Wholesale Dealer--licensees may only buy from, sell to, and deal at wholesale with other licensed dealers.

Auctions--are licensed to sell, on behalf of licensed dealers, through the bid process. Auctions may not sell retail.


Before going into the business of selling motor vehicles, a person must submit a completed application, with required documentation and fees. License applications may be obtained from any Division of Motor Vehicles' regional office.

General DMV Requirements

  • Approval of business location by a DMV representative.
  • Completed application form.
  • Fee of $300 for each main location.

More Information from the KrazyKarGuy - "License for a fee - $199 to $299 a month"

There are companies in Indiana advertising on the Internet now offering to license you for a fee.

These Indiana licenses will allow you to sell to other dealers and wholesalers ONLY. You cannot sell retail to the consumer from your home or on the Internet. Investigate any "licensing for a fee" with the dealer licensing board in YOUR state.

These Indiana companies don't really make that very clear. You could get in a lot of legal hot water by not knowing the laws in YOUR state for buying and selling cars in YOUR state where you are making transactions. The State of Indiana could also get involved if you violate the guidelines of your Indiana license. ALL state statutes (laws) level hefty fines and in some cases jail time for violations.

As an example; Wal-Mart may be have its corporation licensed in Delaware (most companies do) but it MUST follow the laws in all the states where it ACTUALLY does its business transactions. If it doesn't, any state where it does business will take action.

As a dealer doing transactions in a state other than the one you're licensed, you MUST do the same; i.e. follow the laws and licensing statutes of the state where the transaction actually takes place... the location of the product (car) being sold. Selling on the Internet does not absolve you from licensing in the state your doing transactions.

One of the Indiana companies has a "retail" package. You cannot use a retail license in Indiana to make retail transactions in your state if the vehicle is not located in Indiana. Again, the Internet is not a place, its a form of advertising just as classified ads. Verify this with your state licensing board. Protect yourself.

Dental Insurance and Financing Dental Care

Are there cheap places in Houston to get dental work done?

  • The state of Texas has great dental coverage for the people who live in Houston. Dental Coverage is very important to have because you never know when you will have a dental emergency. Make sure you are covered get dental coverage that is right for you. Affordable coverage is the key.
  • One of the oldest charity clinics in the United States, San José Clinic has provided healthcare to the uninsured since 1922. It is the only full-time clinic in the Greater Houston area dedicated exclusively to serving the uninsured.More than 1.1 million--one in every three--persons in the Houston/Harris County area lack health insurance. The demand for low-cost care in this area is consistently greater than available community resources. Primary healthcare for the uninsured is grossly inadequate, and specialty care is almost non-existent. Because of the Clinic's extensive corps of volunteers and teaching affiliations, patients are able to access specialty services in addition to primary healthcare.

A bit more:

Dental schools often offer extremely low prices on all sorts of dental services. The dental interns work pretty much as M.D. interns do, working under the supervision of experienced doctors to obtain experience, while at the same time providing quality care for patients. Dental colleges offer the same quality of services, just not in hospitals where M.D. interns do their residency.

So I would advise you to check with local dental colleges to see what kind of services they offer. You just may be pleasantly surprised.

What are the latitude and longitude of miami?

Since the question is somewhat stingy with its information, we had to make some


1). We assumed that it's not referring to Miami in Manitoba, Arizona, Iowa, Indiana,

Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, or West Virginia, and we went instead with

Miami, Florida.

2). Miami, Florida is a big place. We assumed that the individual who posted the question

will be satisfied with the coordinates of the point in downtown Miami near City Hall, at the

east end of Flagler Street, the zero of north/south address numbering.

The intersection of E. Flagler St. and N/S Biscayne Blvd. is located at

25° 46' 26.7" north latitube

80° 11' 14.1" west longitube

The numbers will change as soon as you go 30 feet from that spot.

Where can you find information about the Florida pirate Billy Bowlegs?

AnswerNot a pirate but a Native American leader in the Seminole Wars:

The available evidence indicates that Billy Bowlegs was part of a ruling Seminole family and that his emergence as a primary leader of his people during the second Seminole War (1835-1842) was due in large part to his birth. But Bowlegs also earned his rank, and it was thanks to his skill in negotiation and delay tactics that his people were able to withstand for many years, efforts to force their removal from Florida to the Indian Territory (now Oklahoma).

Ultimately the pressure for removal became too great. After leading his people in the Third Seminole War (1855-1858), Bowlegs finally agreed to take them to the Indian Territory. Shortly after the Civil War broke out in 1861, he turned to protecting his new home from Confederate attempts to control it, and spent his last years serving as captain in the Union Army's First Indian Regiment.

Yes This is True but there was another Billy Bowlegs check this out.

The year is 1779. Adventurer, wanderer, scoundrel, pirate extraordinaire, and notorious bad boy, William Augustus Bowles, affectionately known as Billy Bowlegs, bursts on the scene. A charismatic leader of men uses his egotistical ambition and superior strength of will for self gain.

Bowles originally came to Pensacola with British forces to hold Pensacola from the Spanish. When the effort failed, he developed an undying hatred for the Spanish visitors. At this time, three countries were vying with the new Americans for control of the sea lanes and trade with Europe. Pursuing his idea of an American Indian state after the end of the American Revolution, Bowles managed to get himself received by King George III as 'Chief of the Embassy for Creek and Cherokee Nations' and it was with British backing that he returned to the Bahamas to train Creek Braves as pirates to attack Spanish ships.

Motley crews in the area were a force to be reckoned with and pirating became a very lucrative business on the high seas. As Bowles' popularity rose, his opponents became more distrustful and vowed to stop at nothing to get him under their control. Resistance came form all sides: the English became afraid Bowles was an agent for the Spanish, the Spanish offered him a Maj. General commission to "change sides" (and later offered $6000 and 1500 kegs of rum for his capture when he refused) and the Americans considered murder to be rid of his devilish activities.

He was briefly captured by the Spaniards. He managed to escape, commandeering a ship and returning to the Gulf of Mexico. In 1795, along with the Seminoles, he formed a short-lived state in northern Florida known as the "State of Muskogee", with himself as its president, and in 1800 declared war on Spain.

In 1803, not long after having declared himself 'Chief of all Indians' at a trial council, he was betrayed by disenchanted Indians. They led him into a trap and turned him over to the Spanish authorities. He was imprisoned in Havana where he would neither speak to his captors nor eat their food and subsequently starved to death at the age of 42. This obscure episode in American history has given rise to a festival which is now an integral part of the Fort Walton Beach Community, the Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival.

..........the year is 2009. Very soon local residents will batten down the hatches in preparation for the invasion of the infamous yet ever popular, Captain Billy Bowlegs. Captain Billy Bowlegs, along with his Queen, has been spotted at several local schools trying to persuade local youngsters to join his Motley Krewe. Captain Billy and his Krewe plan to invade Fort Walton Beach at the 54th Annual Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival in June at Fort Walton Landing. Although Captain Billy's record stands at 53 wins and 0 losses, nothing is a sure thing when it comes to the city militia. The Fort Walton Beach Mayor and his brave Militia are not about to give up control of the city without a fight. Reports also say the militia has a secret weapon in store for those spineless thieves.
