Honeybee License Plate

The “Save The Honey Bee” License Plate is now available for all Louisiana residents!

The cost is $25.00 (royalty fee) per year plus all applicable fees that would normally apply to any Louisiana plate. In addition, the first year there is a onetime handling fee of $8.00 and an administration fee of $3.50. Remember, when you purchase this plate it is a two year plate, so the cost will be $50.00.  Please note that if you are replacing a four year plate you will only get credit for a portion of a two year plate.

The royalty fees will be used solely for financial aid for graduate students working on applied honey bee research projects at the U.S. Department of Agriculture Research Laboratory in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
