By having your status as a veteran noted on your driver’s license, you can easily prove your Veteran status so you receive discounts from businesses. The process involves submitting a veteran designation application at your local Secretary of State office or you can also do it when renewing your driver’s license through the mail. If you are renewing your license or applying for an original, there is no charge for this designation. If you add the designation at any other time, correction fees are assigned.
You are eligible if you have served in any branch of the U.S. armed forces and have an honorable or general discharge. The designation will be noted in red on the front of the card, and there are many local businesses that allow discounts for veterans. For more information, visit the Secretary of State website.
