Plate Gift Certificate Program
On behalf of the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles we
are pleased to inform you about an exciting opportunity for your organization
as well as for Florida motorists. The Department has authorized the
issuance of specialty license plate gift certificates. This new program
allows anyone to purchase a specialty license plate as a gift for
a motor vehicle registrant.
This new gift certificate program works much like any gift certificate.
Upon payment of the statutorily authorized annual use fee, a gift
certificate may now be purchased at an authorized motor vehicle office
(e.g., state motor vehicle office, local
tax collector office, or licensed tag agent)
for any of the specialty license plates currently available in Florida.
At the time of purchase, a receipt will be provided and a credit will
be issued in the name of the gift recipient, which can then be redeemed
by the recipient at the time the specialty license plate is purchased.
You do not have to purchase and redeem the certificate at the same
office. The gift certificate is not required to be presented to redeem
the credit, just proper identification (i.e. Florida driver’s license
or ID card). Once a gift certificate is purchased, the money is given
to the sponsoring plate entity as specified by Florida Statutes. Therefore,
refunds are not available for gift certificates.
We believe that specialty license plates will make great gifts,
and that this new program will provide a great opportunity to promote
the many causes and organizations represented by the plates. Please
remember that in Florida, most registrations are renewed on the
birth date of the registrant, so these gift certificates can also
be a great birthday gift.
