3. Obtaining Your License/ID Card

3.11.1 - Veteran Designation on License or Identification Card

Any honorably discharged U.S veteran may have a veteran designation "V" placed on his or her driver license. The veteran will need to provide a copy of their DD214 or other approved discharge document at the time of issuance.

The veteran designation may be added for $2.00 as long as the current driver license or identification card is surrendered and there are no other license transactions or changes. The replacement driver license or identification card fee is waived; however, the Tax Collector service fees would apply if the transaction is completed in a Tax Collector office.

When other license transactions are being completed at the same time the veteran designation may be added, a $1.00 fee is charged for the veteran designation along with the other transaction fees. The Tax Collector service fee would apply if the transaction is completed in a Tax Collector office.

3.11.2 - Exempt Fees for 100% Disabled U.S. Veterans

Any veteran honorably discharged from the Armed Forces who was issued a valid identification card by the Department of Veteran's Affairs, or a letter of disability determination from the Veterans Administration and has been determined by the Veteran's Administration to have a 100% service-connected disability, is exempt from paying certain driver license fees such as initial license fees and renewal fees. All identification card fees are exempt.
