To sell a motorcycle in Florida, complete a Notice of Sale form first. You do not need to include any details of the purchaser (these are optional). The form includes different sections. All three sections together constitute a bill of sale form that includes additional details of the purchase, while only Section 1 and Section 3 is completed in case you only have chosen to go through with a Notice of Sale rather than the full form.
When going through the process of selling your motorcycle, be careful when completing a Notice of Sale to avoid being liable for your motorcycle even after a deal occurs. The seller can fill out the Notice of Sale type of form by yourself. You may want to get it notarized.

Florida Motorcycle Registering Procedures
If you are a seller, make sure you follow the appropriate procedures so that the buyer can complete the motorcycle registration with no issues.
If you already use a different motorcycle (or a different vehicle) with the same license plate on it, get a demonstration only temporary tag to allow people interested in buying your motorcycle to test it themselves.
Ensure that you have the title, or obtain a copy by submitting the appropriate form to a motor vehicle service center (it comes with a fee). In case you have an electronic title, you still need to go to a motor vehicle service center together with the buyer. Take your photo identifications.
You would need a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), as well as an Odometer Verification (see information on VIN inspection) if the motorcycle was not titled previously in Florida.
Remember that the seller in Florida always has to file the Bill of Sale/Notice of Sale form. If they have failed to do this and the buyer has not applied for the title and registration, the seller can be liable for the motorcycle.
If you are new to Florida, you must register and title your motorcycle within 30 days of your arrival to Florida. Initial registrations are done at a local service center at the time of titling.
