(WFLA) – Drivers in Florida could soon be able to show off their love for the Blue Angels on the road.

Earlier this month, Sen. Doug Broxson introduced a bill to have Florida’s Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles develop a Blue Angels license plate. The plate would be one of the specialty plates available for drivers to choose from.

The bill says the plate would have to bear the colors and design approved by the department. The word “Florida” would have to appear at the top of the plate. “Home of the Blue Angels” would be at the bottom.

Drivers who choose to use the Blue Angels plate would have to pay a $25 annual fee. That is the fee associated with most specialty license plates, but costs do vary. Specialty plates raise money for specific causes.

The fees collected from the Blue Angels plate would be distributed to the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation, the bill says. The money would help fund the maintenance, programs, marketing and projects of the nonprofit, including the National Naval Aviation Museum and National Flight Academy in Pensacola.

If passed, the bill would go into effect Oct. 1, 2019. Anyone who wants the plate would have to visit the tax collector’s office. You can do it when you renew your registration, but you will pay extra if it’s not time to replace your metal license plate yet, according to the DHSMV website. Your plate should be replaced every 10 years.

There are currently more than 120 specialty plate options for drivers to choose from. More information on the annual cost for each plate and where the money goes is available on the DHSMV website.
