Veterans ID on Driver’s License
or ID Card by State
A list of states offering veterans designation logos on driver’s licenses and ID cards which now includes all 50 states plus Puerto Rico and Washington D.C. These state programs now make it easier for veterans to receive access to government benefits and discounts at restaurants and retailers, to which they are entitled.
The VA Veterans identification card is expected to be available to register for this month.
In the past veterans had to carry their DD214 around to prove veteran status or seek a U.S. Government Veterans ID card which, unforyunately, does not yet exist. Currently all 50 states plus Puerto Rico and Washington D.C. that provide the veterans designation.
The states require varying proof of veterans status, so be sure to check with the DMV before applying. Many will only require your DD214 but some states require additional documentation or will accept supplemental documentation to a DD214. Some states do not charge for this designation, but others do.
