Recently we have had several inquiries as to whether or not HID lights are legal in Florida. Can you get an HID light ticket for aftermarket lights in FL? I want to start with my disclaimer… I am not a legal professional, lawyer, state trooper, or anyone else that might take legal responsibility if this is proven inaccurate! I am simply posting about the laws specific to the Florida vehicle code in regards to headlamps. HID Laws vary from state to state and this post does not imply that HID Laws in one state will reflect the Headlight Laws in another state.
So, Are HID lights legal in Florida?
