Online Specialty Plate Ordering Now Available

Scott Lunsford, Escambia County Tax Collector, proudly announces the launch of a new service that allows for online ordering of specialty license plates.

“We are excited to be the first tax collector’s office in the state to offer this service to our citizens,” Lunsford said. “Online ordering allows a person an easy and convenient way to order the specialty plate of his or her choice without ever having to visit our office.”

“The specialty plate program allows individuals the opportunity to support charitable and environmental organizations with plates that feature unique designs,” Lunsford continued. “By offering online ordering, we are able to provide the opportunity for anyone with access to a computer to participate in supporting the wonderful causes.”

The process is easy. Visit and click on the “Order Specialty Plate” button on the homepage. Fill in the requested information and submit the form. A tax collector agent will contact the person requesting the specialty plate to verify the information and collect payment. The plate will then be placed in the mail. There are no additional fees when paying by eCheck. When paying with a debit or credit card, a service fee will apply.

Costs will vary depending on if you are in the renewal period for your registration. A new license plate fee, specialty license plate annual use fee, and other applicable fees will apply. Specialty license plates cost a set fee (annually) above the standard Florida license plate. The fees vary based on the type of license plate. These additional funds go to support the cause for which the specialty license plate was designed.
