Florida State Licensing Requirements

Transmission RepairIn Florida, transmission shops are not required to have an official state license. They are only required to register with the FDACS (Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services), but this organization does not oversee the competency or set standards for these transmission repair shops.

Therefore, there’s no guarantee that any individual transmission shop in Orlando FL employs competent mechanics, is doing business ethically, delivering value, or satisfying customers. It ends up being up to the consumer to evaluate the transmission shop themselves.

Florida Motor Vehicle Repair Act

According to this statute, if a transmission repair is estimated to cost more than $100, the repair facility is required to have you choose from one of the following:

  • A written estimate
  • Notification from the technicians at the transmission shop that the repair exceeds a customer-specified amount
  • Declining a written estimate

Whichever option you choose, it needs to be signed and dated on paper to indicate that you either received an estimate, chose not to receive one, or that you were notified that the repair is going to exceed a certain amount. This law protects the customer – these shops can not force you to waive your right to an estimate.

Written Estimates
Every customer must be given a copy of a written estimate if one is required. It should state if the quote is for new, used, or rebuilt transmission parts.

Additional customer approval is required if the actual cost of the repair is predicted to exceed the estimate by more than $10 or 10% of the original estimate, whichever is greater. The customer has the right to cancel ongoing transmission repairs if they exceed the estimate, and the shop is required to reassemble the vehicle unless it would be unsafe to drive. The transmission shop will likely charge you for the reassembly process, but only if you are notified about that reassembly charge on the original estimate.

If you requested to receive old parts after the repair is complete, Florida law supports this request. The transmission shop may charge you a fee for this. Additionally, if the old parts you are requesting to keep are under warranty with the distributor or manufacturer, you may not be able to get those parts back.

Invoice
When the repairs for your transmission are complete, the written invoice you receive must include the following details:

  • Date(s) of Repair
  • Odometer Reading
  • Description of the completed work
  • Hourly labor rate
  • Cost of parts and other miscellaneous fees
  • Condition of Replacement parts (new, used, rebuilt)
  • Guarantee or warranty, if any.
  • Transmission Shop’s Registration Number from their FDACS certificate

Amount Over Written Estimate

If the final repair costs exceeds the original estimate that you authorized by more than $10 or 10% of the total, whichever is greater, and the shop refuses to surrender your vehicle to you unless you pay it, here is a list of actions you can take:

  • Using a copy of the bill, file a bond with the Clerk of the Circuit Court in the county where the transmission shop is located. The bond amount should include the final repair bill plus any vehicle storage charges, if there are any.
  • The transmission shop will receive an order from the clerk to direct them to release your vehicle to you. A member of law enforcement will help deliver the certificate if necessary, and you will get your vehicle back.
  • After this, the transmission shop has 60 days to file a lawsuit to recover the bond as payment for your transmission repair. If they choose not to sue within this time frame, the clerk will return the bond money to you.
