The State of Florida will begin making the Donate Life specialty license plates if 3,000 vouchers are sold. These specialty plates make it easy to promote organ, tissue, and eye donation every time you're heading to work, going shopping, or whenever you're out! Please order yours today. The cost is just $32.50 if order online.
Sales of these plates benefit Donate Life Florida, the state organization that manages our organ, tissue, and eye donor registry. Donate Life Florida's mission is to educate Floridians about donation and encourage them to register as organ, tissue and eye donors.
Getting a voucher for the new Donate Life license plate is easy. You can purchase a voucher online through the St. Lucie County tax collector’s office. You don't have to live St. Lucie county to purchase the voucher online.
Vouchers can also be purchased at any tax collector's office in person. Many offices are taking customers via appointment only, so please check with the offices in your county for the rules: www.FLHSMV.gov/locations.
Additional information on the plate and voucher process is on the Donate Life Florida website at DonateLifeFlorida.org.
