Ride in style and support conservation with the new Bonefish & Tarpon Trust Florida license plate, featuring the art of Derek DeYoung!

Orders for plates are now being accepted. The BTT plate will be produced as soon as we have sold 3,000 vouchers at a cost of $33 each ($25 will directly benefit Bonefish & Tarpon Trust). If you hold a valid Florida Driver’s License or Official Florida Identification Card, you are eligible to purchase vouchers for your car, truck, trailer and RV! Vouchers can be purchased at any time–you do not need to wait until your registration renewal date to order one.

BTT has partnered with the Columbia County Tax Collector to process online orders. Regardless of where you live in Florida, you can conveniently reserve your voucher by completing the simple form below. After you complete the form and submit payment of $33.00, the Columbia County Tax Collector will mail you your voucher within 2-3 weeks.

Once BTT meets its goal of 3,000 vouchers sold, the license plate will be manufactured, and you will be notified by the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) that your license plate is ready. The vehicle owner must match the voucher holder.

Right now, just hold onto your voucher. BTT will post an announcement on its website and social media accounts when it reaches the goal of 3,000 vouchers sold. Once the goal is met, the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) will begin production on the license plates, which takes approximately eight weeks. When completed, you will be notified by the FLHSMV that the license plate is ready. You can then redeem your voucher at your local tax collector’s office or license plate agencies. Find your tax collector by following this link: https://floridataxcollectors.com/your-tax-collector/

Yes, you can purchase a voucher before your current plate is due for renewal.

No, you can redeem your voucher at any time once the plates have been produced and distributed to your local tax collector’s office or tag agency.

Personalized license plates can be ordered after the license plates have been manufactured and delivered to the tax collector offices. You can request a personalized license plate when you redeem your voucher.

Yes, but please be aware that it may take an additional 10-12 weeks to receive a personalized plate.

Vouchers are not transferable and will be mailed to the purchaser’s current address on file with the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles database unless a different shipping address is noted.

A specialty license plate voucher cannot be transferred, replaced, refunded or exchanged unless the plate fails to meet the minimum pre-sale requirement. At the conclusion of the 24-month pre-sale period, if the minimum sales requirement has not been met, the purchaser of the specialty license plate voucher may apply for a refund using Form HSMV 83363 (https://www.flhsmv.gov/pdf/forms/83363.pdf).

Yes, but you will need to submit a separate order form for each one.

No, the voucher fee only covers the cost of the new specialty plate ($25 which is donated to Bonefish & Tarpon Trust), State of Florida processing fee ($5) and the Service/Branch fee ($3).

You will still need to pay your normal registration fees as outlined by your local tax collector’s office. Please visit https://www.flhsmv.gov/fees/ for information on motor vehicle registration fees.

If the plate fails to meet the minimum presale requirements, you may apply the presale voucher toward a different specialty license plate or apply for a refund for the specialty license plate fee only. Form HSMV 83363 is used to apply for a refund (https://www.flhsmv.gov/pdf/forms/83363.pdf).

All vouchers are sent to the purchasers, so if you wish the voucher to be a surprise, you can personally give it to the recipient.
