How To Obtain a Car Accident Report in Florida
At the Law Offices of Keith Bregoff, our car, motorcycle, pedestrian, and truck accident attorney knows that the success of your crash and injury recovery hinges on law enforcement responding to the scene of the collision and completing an official accident report.
Our Vero Beach personal injury attorney also knows that after you have been hurt in a crash, you may not have time or the physical or emotional ability to ask for a crash report at the scene.
Here is how you can request a copy of your official accident report online, by mail, or in person.
Order a Florida Crash Report Online
To order a Florida vehicle accident report, log on to the Florida Crash Portal and fill in the requested information.
Crash reports are available online for $10, plus a $2 convenience fee for each transaction.
Once the crash report is purchased, a download link will be emailed to the email address provided at the time of the request and must be downloaded within 48 hours of the request.
Request a Florida Crash Report By Mail or In Person
Drivers or passengers who order a crash report by mail or in-person must do so within 60 days after the date of the crash, then complete a Sworn Statement to Obtain Crash Report.
To request a copy of a crash report by mail, complete the statement and enclose a check or money order for $10, made payable to FLHSMV before mailing the request to:
Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
2900 Apalachee Parkway, MS 28
Tallahassee, FL 32399
Florida crash reports take approximately 4-6 weeks of processing time when requested by mail.
Florida accident reports are available in person at a local Troop Station nearest to where the crash occurred.
