  100         320.055 Registration periods; renewal periods.—The
  101  following registration periods and renewal periods are
  102  established:
  103         (1)
  104         (c) Notwithstanding the requirements of paragraph (a), the
  105  owner of a motor vehicle subject to paragraph (a) who has had
  106  his or her driver license suspended pursuant to a violation of
  107  s. 316.193 or pursuant to s. 322.26(2) for driving under the

  111  registration period begins the first day of the birth month of
  112  the owner and ends the last day of the fifth month immediately
  113  following the owner’s birth month. For such vehicles, the
  114  department shall issue a vehicle registration certificate and,

  116  that are that is valid for 6 months and shall issue a validation
  117  sticker that displays an expiration date of 6 months after the
  118  date of issuance. The license tax required by s. 320.08 and all
  119  other applicable license taxes shall be one-half of the amount
  120  otherwise required, except the service charge required by s.
  121  320.04 shall be paid in full for each 6-month registration. A
  122  vehicle required to be registered under this paragraph is not
  123  eligible for the extended registration period under paragraph
  124  (b).
  125         Section 5. Section 320.06, Florida Statutes, is amended to
  126  read:
  127         320.06 Registration certificates, registration certificate
  128  cards, license plates, and validation stickers generally.—
  129         (1)(a) Upon the receipt of an initial application for
  130  registration and payment of the appropriate license tax and
  131  other fees required by law, the department shall assign to the
  132  motor vehicle a registration license number consisting of
  133  letters and numerals or numerals and issue to the owner or
  134  lessee a certificate of registration, a registration certificate
  135  card if requested by the owner or lessee, and one registration
  136  license plate, unless two plates are required for display by s.
  137  320.0706, for each vehicle so registered.
  138         (b)1. Registration license plates bearing a graphic symbol
  139  and the alphanumeric system of identification shall be issued
  140  for a 10-year period. At the end of the 10-year period, upon
  141  renewal, the plate shall be replaced. The department shall
  142  extend the scheduled license plate replacement date from a 6
  143  year period to a 10-year period. The fee for such replacement is
  144  $28, $2.80 of which shall be paid each year before the plate is
  145  replaced, to be credited toward the next $28 replacement fee.
  146  The fees shall be deposited into the Highway Safety Operating
  147  Trust Fund. A credit or refund may not be given for any prior
  148  years’ payments of the prorated replacement fee if the plate is
  149  replaced or surrendered before the end of the 10-year period,
  150  except that a credit may be given if a registrant is required by
  151  the department to replace a license plate under s.
  152  320.08056(8)(a). With each license plate, a validation sticker
  153  shall be issued showing the owner’s birth month, license plate
  154  number, and the year of expiration or the appropriate renewal
  155  period if the owner is not a natural person. The validation
  156  sticker shall be placed on the upper right corner of the license
  157  plate. The license plate and validation sticker shall be issued
  158  based on the applicant’s appropriate renewal period. The
  159  registration period is 12 months, the extended registration
  160  period is 24 months, and all expirations occur based on the
  161  applicant’s appropriate registration period. Rental vehicles
  162  taxed pursuant to s. 320.08(6)(a) may elect a permanent
  163  registration period, provided payment of the appropriate license
  164  taxes and fees occurs annually. A vehicle that has an
  165  apportioned registration shall be issued an annual license plate
  166  and a cab card that denote the declared gross vehicle weight for
  167  each apportioned jurisdiction in which the vehicle is authorized
  168  to operate.
  169         2. In order to retain the efficient administration of the
  170  taxes and fees imposed by this chapter, the 80-cent fee increase
  171  in the replacement fee imposed by chapter 2009-71, Laws of
  172  Florida, is negated as provided in s. 320.0804.
  173         (c) Registration license plates equipped with validation
  174  stickers subject to the registration period are valid for not
  175  more than 12 months and expire at midnight on the last day of
  176  the registration period. A registration license plate equipped
  177  with a validation sticker subject to the extended registration
  178  period is valid for not more than 24 months and expires at
  179  midnight on the last day of the extended registration period. A
  180  registration license plate equipped with a validation sticker
  181  subject to a permanent registration period is permanently valid
  182  but shall become void if appropriate license taxes and fees are
  183  not paid annually. For each registration period after the one in
  184  which the metal registration license plate is issued, and until
  185  the license plate is required to be replaced, a validation
  186  sticker showing the month and year of expiration shall be issued
  187  upon payment of the proper license tax amount and fees and is
  188  valid for not more than 12 months. For each extended
  189  registration period occurring after the one in which the metal
  190  registration license plate is issued and until the license plate
  191  is required to be replaced, a validation sticker showing the
  192  year of expiration shall be issued upon payment of the proper
  193  license tax amount and fees and is valid for not more than 24
  194  months. For each permanent registration period occurring after
  195  the one in which the metal registration license plate is issued
  196  and until the license plate is required to be replaced, a
  197  validation sticker showing a permanent registration period shall
  198  be issued upon payment of the proper license tax amount and fees
  199  and is permanently valid but shall become void if the proper
  200  license taxes and fees are not paid annually. When license
  201  plates equipped with validation stickers are issued in any month
  202  other than the owner’s birth month or the designated
  203  registration period for any other motor vehicle, the effective
  204  date shall reflect the birth month or month and the year of
  205  renewal. However, when a license plate or validation sticker is
  206  issued for a period of less than 12 months, the applicant shall
  207  pay the appropriate amount of license tax and the applicable fee
  208  under s. 320.14 in addition to all other fees. Validation
  209  stickers issued for vehicles taxed under s. 320.08(6)(a), for
  210  any company that owns 250 vehicles or more, or for semitrailers
  211  taxed under the provisions of s. 320.08(5)(a), for any company
  212  that owns 50 vehicles or more, may be placed on any vehicle in
  213  the fleet so long as the vehicle receiving the validation
  214  sticker has the same owner’s name and address as the vehicle to
  215  which the validation sticker was originally assigned.
  216         (2) The department shall provide the several tax collectors
  217  and license plate agents with the necessary number of validation
  218  stickers.
  219         (3)(a) Registration license plates must be made of metal
  220  specially treated with a retroreflection material, as specified
  221  by the department. The registration license plate is designed to
  222  increase nighttime visibility and legibility and must be at
  223  least 6 inches wide and not less than 12 inches in length,
  224  unless a plate with reduced dimensions is deemed necessary by
  225  the department to accommodate motorcycles, mopeds, or similar
  226  smaller vehicles. Validation stickers must also be treated with
  227  a retroreflection material, must be of such size as specified by
  228  the department, and must adhere to the license plate. The
  229  registration license plate must be imprinted with a combination
  230  of bold letters and numerals or numerals, not to exceed seven
  231  digits, to identify the registration license plate number. The
  232  license plate must be imprinted with the word “Florida” at the
  233  top and the name of the county in which it is sold, the state
  234  motto, or the words “Sunshine State” at the bottom. Apportioned
  235  license plates must have the word “Apportioned” at the bottom,
  236  and license plates issued for vehicles taxed under s.
  237  320.08(3)(d), (4)(m) or (n), (5)(b) or (c), or (14) must have
  238  the word “Restricted” at the bottom. License plates issued for
  239  vehicles taxed under s. 320.08(12) must be imprinted with the
  240  word “Florida” at the top and the word “Dealer” at the bottom
  241  unless the license plate is a specialty license plate as
  242  authorized in s. 320.08056. Manufacturer license plates issued
  243  for vehicles taxed under s. 320.08(12) must be imprinted with
  244  the word “Florida” at the top and the word “Manufacturer” at the
  245  bottom. License plates issued for vehicles taxed under s.
  246  320.08(5)(d) or (e) must be imprinted with the word “Wrecker” at
  247  the bottom. Any county may, upon majority vote of the county
  248  commission, elect to have the county name removed from the
  249  license plates sold in that county. The state motto or the words
  250  “Sunshine State” shall be printed in lieu thereof. A license
  251  plate issued for a vehicle taxed under s. 320.08(6) may not be
  252  assigned a registration license number, or be issued with any
  253  other distinctive character or designation, that distinguishes
  254  the motor vehicle as a for-hire motor vehicle.
  255         (b) An additional fee of 50 cents shall be collected on
  256  each motor vehicle registration or motor vehicle renewal
  257  registration issued in this state in order for all license
  258  plates and validation stickers to be fully treated with
  259  retroreflection material. The fee shall be deposited into the
  260  Highway Safety Operating Trust Fund.
  261         (4) The corporation organized under chapter 946 may
  262  manufacture license plates, validation stickers, and decals, as
  263  well as temporary tags, disabled hang tags, vessel decals, and
  264  fuel use decals, for the Department of Highway Safety and Motor
  265  Vehicles as provided in this chapter and chapter 327. The
  266  Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is not required
  267  to obtain competitive bids in order to contract with the
  268  corporation.
  269         (5) The department may conduct a pilot program to evaluate
  270  the designs, concepts, and technologies for alternative license
  271  plates. For purposes of the pilot program, the department shall
  272  investigate the feasibility and use of alternative license plate
  273  technologies and the long-term cost impact to the consumer. The
  274  pilot program shall be limited to license plates that are used
  275  on government-owned motor vehicles as described in s. 320.0655.
  276  Such license plates are exempt from the requirements in
  277  paragraph (3)(a).
  278         (6) All license plates issued pursuant to this chapter are
  279  the property of the state.

  291  International Registration Plan shall, at all times while the
  292  vehicle is being used or operated on the roads of this state, be
  293  in the possession of the operator thereof or be carried in the
  294  vehicle for which issued and shall be exhibited upon demand of
  295  any authorized law enforcement officer or any agent of the
  296  department, except for a vehicle registered under s. 320.0657.
  297  This section does not apply during the first 30 days after
  298  purchase of a replacement vehicle. A violation of this section
  299  is a noncriminal traffic infraction, punishable as a nonmoving
  300  violation as provided in chapter 318.
  301         Section 7. Paragraph (a) of subsection (1), paragraph (a)
  302  of subsection (5), and subsection (7) of section 320.0609,

  312  classification; or, subject to the procedures set forth in
  313  subsection (2), such plate may be surrendered to the department
  314  in exchange for a license plate of the appropriate
  315  classification, if the replacement vehicle is of a different
  316  classification.
  317         (5) For a transfer or exchange other than one specified in
  318  paragraph (2)(b), the following provisions apply:
  319         (a) If the replacement motor vehicle requires the same
  320  amount of license tax under s. 320.08 as the original vehicle to
  321  be replaced, no additional tax other than the transfer fee of
  322  $4.50, accompanied by an application for transfer on a form
  323  supplied by the department, is required to transfer or exchange

  365  certificate or registration certificate card within 10 working
