The state of Florida on Wednesday unveiled a new design for the Tampa Bay Lightning specialty license plate. It’s splashed in Lightning blue and is available in state tax collector and tag agency offices.
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles said in a release that as of Aug. 1, there were 9,297 active Tampa Bay Lightning specialty plates in the state. You can get one by paying the $25 specialty license tag fee on top of the standard registration fees. Some of the money from the sale of this plate goes to the Florida Professional Sports Development Trust Fund.
This is the second redesign of the Lightning plate, which was introduced in 1995.
The state of Florida has more than 120 specialty plates, honoring sports teams, the military, colleges, the environment/wildlife and almost any interest you have.
How many people have specialty license plates? 1.6 million.
