I have found that the Department of Motor Vehicles tends to be helpful and flexible when it comes to title transfer of vehicles in small estates. I suppose they do not want unregistered, uninsured, and unlicensed vehicles on the road. Take the death certificate, will, and perhaps an agreement signed by all of the heirs at law to DMV.

If they cannot help you, then Florida has several types of procedures for smaller estates.  Your scenario may even qualify for disposition of personal property without administration, depending on the value of the assets.

Good luck

Estate Litigation
Most estates go through the probate process in a smooth manner. But if a family member feels that he or she has been wronged, disputes can occur. From voided wills to looted estates, from accounting disputes to disagreements over the sale of assets, an estate litigation attorney can represent either the estate itself or beneficiaries in the event of a contested will, contested trust and/or allegations of wrongdoing. Estate litigation lawyers and law firms can also work with families if guardianship is being contested.
