Can I get my Florida license plates reassigned to another vehicle? Florida

Yes, you certainly can.

In Florida, the license plates stay with you and not your vehicles. So, when you sell or just get rid of the vehicle, be sure to remove the FL license plates. You can then transfer the plates to another vehicle you own.

But, you can't hand your plates to someone else for their use. If you no longer have a need for your license plates, take them to a country tax collector's office or license plate agency for cancellation.

Transferring Personalized or Vanity Plates

What about personalized plates or vanity plates? If you're willing to give up your personalized plate to another vehicle owner, you must first surrender your plate at a county tax collector's office or license plate agency. You must confirm your desire to release your plates in writing.

Then, the person who wants your plates must complete the necessary personalized plate paperwork and go through the usual registration procedures to eventually be given your old plates.
