News & Important Information


It’s now easier to surrender your license plates!

Located outside of each of the six service centers throughout Lee County, customers can use these secure boxes to turn in unused license plates. Simply take a pre-printed envelope from the container on either side of the box, fill out the information, place the
license plate inside the envelope and drop it into the box.

No more waiting in line! Plates turned in by 4 p.m. on business days will be processed the same day with a receipt mailed to the address on record. 

Specialty License Plate Pre-Sale Vouchers

After the Florida Legislature approves a new specialty license plate, the sponsoring organization must sell a certain number of pre-sale vouchers within 24 months before the new plate is manufactured and made available to Florida drivers.

Now, customers will be able to purchase those vouchers directly from our website, without having to come into an office. 

“These are exciting new additions in a series of innovations we have made to help achieve our mission of providing 5-star service to customers quickly and efficiently,” explains Tax Collector Noelle Branning. “We continuously look for ways to enhance a customer’s experience, while providing excellent government service.
