Florida Specialty License Plates Online
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has released six new military specialty license plates.
Plates require proof of military service - Fees vary depending on vehicle weight
The specialty plates — the Combat Action Ribbon, Distinguished Flying Cross, Woman Veteran, Air Force Combat Action Medal, Navy Submariner and World War II Veteran — all have unique requirements that must be met, such as proof of service in the armed forces, to obtain them.
The DHSMV says forms and documentation are required for each plate, and fees for the plate are assessed according to the weight of the vehicle. Some of the new specialty plates can also be personalized.
To order one, customers should visit a location nearest them. The World War II Veteran plate is only available in Tallahassee, but local DHSMV and tax collector’s offices can order this license plate on behalf of the customer.
DHSMV now offers 36 military license plates. The designs can be viewed on the department’s website at www.flhsmv.gov/specialtytags/miltags along with links to forms, requirements and a fee schedule.
DHSMV says in 2015, there were 90,456 military specialty license plates issued statewide.
