The State of Florida offers a way for residents to contribute to a causes close to their heart through specialty license plates. The plan to use a specialty license plate to build a billion-dollar fund for state park repairs now includes additional tags for veterans, Biscayne Bay, and Margaritaville.  The specialty plates offer Palm Beach County residents an opportunity to adorn their cars with their favorite causes.

Along the way the plan to boost funds for state parks became an opportunity to pick up proposed plates for veterans, environmental causes, disease awareness and other causes to gain support.  The Park’s system wants the funds to restore seabeds and trails.  As well as to revitalize ecosystems and animal habitats and renovate welcome centers, cabins, and restrooms. 

Florida already has more than 120 specialty tags. The state currently offers more than 120 specialty plates; the number fluctuates as the plates drop below the 1,000 registrations needed to stay in print and others join the list once they generate the 3,000 requests needed before the state will offer a plate.  To get a specialty license plate, drivers pay an annual fee between $15 and $25 on top of registration costs. The extra money goes to organizations dedicated to the cause the plate promotes. 

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles said as of this month there were 1,710,552 specialty plates on Florida vehicles. Here are the top 10 specialty tags in the state as of April 22, 2021.
