Gift Certificate Program

Birthdays, holidays, special days ... you can celebrate with the plate every day. The Florida Department of Motor Vehicles has authorized the issuance of specialty license plate gift certificates. This new program allows anyone to purchase an FAU specialty license plate as a gift for a motor vehicle registrant living in Florida.

How it works: Upon payment of the annual use fee, a gift certificate may now be purchased at an authorized motor vehicle office (e.g., state motor vehicle office, local tax collector office, or a licensed tag agent) for the FAU specialty license plate. At the time of purchase, a receipt will be provided and a credit will be issued in the name of the gift recipient, which can then be redeemed by the recipient at the time the specialty license plate is purchased. You do not have to purchase and redeem the certificate at the same office. The gift certificate is not required to be presented to redeem the credit, just proper identification (i.e. Florida driver’s license or ID card). Once a gift certificate is purchased, the $25 fee is given to the University's scholarship fund; therefore, refunds are not available for gift certificates.

Please remember that in Florida, most registrations are renewed on the birth date of the registrant, so these gift certificates can also be a great birthday gift.

*To find the address of your nearest tax collector’s office visit or call 800-922-9000. For mail-in renewal with upgrade: Your additional payment for upgrade to the specialty plate will include a one-time upgrade fee and an annual renewal fee. Add the appropriate amount to your normal renewal fees and indicate on the form that you wish to upgrade to the FAU Specialty Tag. For online renewal with upgrade: an additional $8 processing fee is added. Online orders are managed by My Florida Specialty Plate, a private company that the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has contracted with to offer online transactions for the replacement of existing Florida license plates. Florida Atlantic University assumes no responsibility for the materials or information on the My Florida Specialty Plate website. Transactions are solely between you and My Florida Specialty Plate.

Maximum value of $25, must be submitted within one year of initial upgrade and received in the FAU Alumni Relations office prior to expiration date of voucher. This voucher is intended to cover a portion of the initial specialty license plate charge. The FAU Alumni Relations office is NOT responsible for paying annual renewal fees or any future fees incurred. This offer is not valid on existing FAU Specialty License Plates (including logo updates), or for license plate upgrades prior to January 1, 2015. This voucher may not be combined with any other offer. Voucher expires June 30, 2018.
