During the 2020 Legislative Session, the State of Florida authorized 41 specialty license plates. New plate options include Orlando City Soccer Club, the University of Alabama, and Walt Disney World.
Before being fully approved and available for drivers, specialty plates must sell 3,000 $33 pre-sale vouchers within 24 months. Proposed out-of-state college plates, like those for the Universities of Alabama and Georgia, need 4,000 pre-sales within the same period.
According to state records, the Walt Disney World license plate sold 1,836 vouchers since pre-sales began in October 2020. At the current rate, the Walt Disney World plate will meet the pre-sale threshold later this year.
Other proposed local plates are not selling as well. State records show the Orlando City Soccer Club with only 258 pre-sale vouchers. The nonprofit organization Give Kids The World, which provides Make-a-Wish vacations to children, sold 10 vouchers to date. It is well shy of the 3,000 required to finalize the plate for Florida drivers.
Out-of-state college pre-sale vouchers are selling at a quicker pace. The University of Alabama sold 776 vouchers, Auburn Univerity sold 665 vouchers. The University of Georgia sold 305 pre-sale vouchers to date.
Once an organization meets the pre-sale requirement and the plate is finalized, it will join the Florida residents' 120 current specialty plate options. Drivers who select specialty plates pay an additional $33 per year, given to the organization sponsoring the plate. State records report 1.7 million Florida residents use a specialty license plate.
Orange County residents can purchase pre-sale vouchers on the County Tax Collector's website.
