UF License TagQ. I live in Florida. How do I get the UF Gator Nation specialty plate?

Q. How much does the UF plate cost?
A. The plate costs just $25 per year in addition to the regular issue Florida license plate fee when you renew your tag. The plate fee varies for each state.

Q. Can I buy the new Gator Nation plate before I’m required to renew?
A. Yes, you can. There is a “new metal” plate fee of $25 in addition to the registration and specialty plate fees.

Q. Why do I have to pay extra every year?
A. The purpose of specialty license plates is to raise funds for a particular cause, i.e., Florida wildlife, Boy Scouts, education, etc. Florida Statutes require an annual fee for the use of special design plates.

A. Proceeds benefit scholarships and numerous academic programs at the University of Florida.

Q. What is my normal registration cost?
A. The base cost for registering a personal vehicle in Florida depends on vehicle type and weight, or trailer weights (call your tax collector to confirm the fee).

A. Yes, with up to 5 characters. You must check with your county license plate agency to reserve a unique set of characters. The extra fee is $15.00 if the old license plate tag is surrendered in Florida. The personalization and fee varies for each state. Spaces count as characters!
