Bicycle License

Question

Dolores asked: Do you have to have a registered license plate for a bicycle in order to ride on streets or highways in the state of Florida?

Answer

There is no state requirement to register, obtain a license tag or have a driver’s license to operate a bicycle in Florida. You should insure that you know the requirements of your community though, since there could be a local ordinance that regulates bicycle operation. An example is this from Daytona Beach.

Sec. 94-287. – Issuance of sticker; display.

At the time of issuance of a license as provided in section 94-285, the police department shall also issue a registration sticker which shall be affixed to the rear of the frame of the licensed bicycle in a conspicuous place and shall remain so affixed while the bicycle is operated upon any public right-of-way within the city.

You can check your local ordinances by searching the Muni Codes for your community. For example: Muni codes Daytona Beach FL.
