New Designations For Veterans In Pennsylvania

03.05.14 | Bob Price

Veterans In Pennsylvania Will Now Have New Designations On Driver Licenses And Identification Cards.

Surrounded by veterans and the Pennsylvania National Guard, Governor Tom Corbett kicked off the new marks today.

The designations will include an American Flag with 'Veteran' beneath it.

It will appear on the front of both driver licenses and identification cards.

Governor Corbett says its an effort to recognize the men and women who put their lives on the line to serve America.

There is no fee for the veteran designation, but regular renewal or duplicate fees still apply.

Qualified applicants for a Veterans Designation include those who have received a Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty/DD214 or equivalent, for service in the United States Armed Forces, including a reserve component, or the National Guard who were discharged or released from such service under conditions other than dishonorable.

Forms for driver’s license or ID renewals and duplicates now have a box for applicants to certify that they are a veteran, and to have the designation added. Once the Veterans Designation has been added to a driver’s license or identification card, it will automatically appear each time the card is renewed.

Veterans holding a non-commercial driver’s license or identification card can immediately apply for the designation by visiting www.dmv.state.pa.us and clicking on the American Flag/Veterans Designation icon.
