Beginning the week of February 2, 2004, PRIDE will start delivery of the redesigned Challenger/Columbia specialty license plate. Upon receipt, please immediately issue the new license plate.

The old (obsolete) Challenger specialty license plates must be recorded on form HSMV 84003 (Receipt/Certificate of Disposal of Tags, Decals and Permits) for audit purposes. Once you have completed the form, please fax it to Inventory Control at 850-414-9769. Inventory Control will utilize this form to mark all identified ranges as obsolete. Then, each agency must electronically transfer the obsolete inventory to Bin 67. This bin continues to be the bin designated for every agency’s obsolete inventory. In addition, please physically remove these obsolete specialty license plates from your inventory for PRIDE to pick up as they make future deliveries.

Your continual cooperation is greatly appreciated. Should you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the Inventory Control Section at (850) 921-7777.
