New Benefit Availble For Veterans

Veterans can now request, at no additional cost, that the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) print the word “veteran” on the upper left hand side of their driver’s license or non-driver ID card. The benefit is part of a new law which recently took effect. Veterans can receive this status by submitting proof that they were honorably discharged the next time they apply or reapply for a driver’s license or non-driver ID card.


Placing this new “veterans” designation on licenses and non-driver ID cards gives individuals a single, easy to carry ID card which is uniformly recognized to prove they are a veteran. This is another way to recognize veterans for their service and make their lives a little easier.
