History

President Bernie Sliger receiving the first FSU license plate from Senator Curt Kiser

In 1987, the Florida Legislature authorized (320.08058), approving the creation of the Florida State University License Plate. On October 1st of that year, the first specialty plates were minted and made available for sale. Our specialty plates have grown to become one of the top selling plates in Florida, raising over $1 million annually. With costs of just $25 per year plus registration fees, our plates have raised more than $45 million in scholarship funds since 1987!
