Nephew sold his car and transferred to Paris for 2 years. I have the plates. Does anyone know what happens if they're not returned? Should I just hold them or ?

He will not be returning to FL, fwiw.

Thank you.

In FL you must surrender your license plate when you sell your vehicle and are not transferring the plate to a replacement vehicle. Not doing so could result in a driver license suspension. When you surrender your plate, a document will be printed indicating the license plate is canceled. Retain the “Surrendered Registration” receipt as this may be used to exempt the $225 initial registration fee in the future if a replacement vehicle is registered in FL.

That may be the "statute", but I kept all of my old FL license plates and never had a problem. Although, it's been 5+ years since I've dealt with the FL DMV.

Why don't you go to the Florida DMV site and check it out yourself...better than making a huge mistake....and getting a suspension notice from the DMV
