Motor Vehicle Retail Installment Seller License and Sales Finance License Up for Renewal

If you are a BHPH Dealer in Florida or have set up a separate finance company, you may have already received a renewal notice from the Florida Office of Financial Regulation for your Motor Vehicle Retail Installment Seller License or Sales Finance License. These licenses are due for renewal by December 31, 2018.

The renewal notice may have also included password reset instructions for the REAL (Regulatory Enforcement and Licensing) System. To renew your applicable license, you should login to the REAL System as soon as possible to ensure you have access and avoid any potential delays in processing or missing the renewal deadline and incurring late fees.

Additional information and user guides for the new REAL System online services are available on our website at

If you have any questions, please contact OFR at (850) 410-9895.
