TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (HSMV) announced today the release of Florida State University's redesigned specialty license plate, which features the school's new team logo and better reflects the official school colors of garnet and gold.
A spokesperson for HSMV says the plate was shipped to tag offices around the state this week. It will cost $25 in addition to the state registration fees. HSMV says revenue from the sale of the plates go for academic enhancement at FSU.
According to the Florida HSMV, the FSU plate is the state's second most popular specialty license plate with more than 62,000 of the tags sold last year. They say FSU officials chose to redesign the plate after the Seminole football team won its third national championship a year ago.
