    5         Section 1. Subsection (2) of section 319.23, Florida
    6  Statutes, is amended to read:
    7         319.23 Application for, and issuance of, certificate of
    8  title.—
    9         (2) The applicant for a certificate of title shall indicate
   10  on the application if the motor vehicle is to be used as a
   11  taxicab, police vehicle, or lease vehicle or if the motor
   12  vehicle or mobile home is a rebuilt vehicle, as those terms are
   13  defined in s. 319.14. If the applicant indicates on the
   14  application for a certificate of title that the motor vehicle is
   15  a rebuilt vehicle, the department shall visually inspect the
   16  vehicle. If, upon inspection, the department has reasonable
   17  cause to believe that the vehicle is unsafe or not equipped as
   18  required by law, the department shall issue an affidavit-of
   19  compliance and the applicant must then make necessary repairs
   20  and present the vehicle to a law enforcement department for
   21  confirmation that any defect has been corrected pursuant to s.
   22  316.6105, before a certificate of title may be issued for such
   23  vehicle. Upon issuance of a certificate of title for such
   24  vehicle, the department shall stamp, in a conspicuous place on
   25  the title, words stating the nature of the proposed use of the
   26  vehicle or stating that the vehicle has been rebuilt. This
   27  subsection applies to a mobile home, travel trailer, camping
   28  trailer, truck camper, or fifth-wheel recreation trailer only
   29  when the mobile home or vehicle is a rebuilt vehicle as defined
   30  in s. 319.14.
