How can I get a Veteran designation on my DL/ID?

Obtaining your Veteran designation on my DL/ID is as easy as 1, 2, 3!  Get your records, then visit any CVSO, and then visit any DMV:

  1. Get Records. Find an original or certified copy of your military discharge certificate (DD214).  If you need assistance obtaining your military records, then contact any County Veteran Service Officer (CVSO)

  2. Visit Any CVSO. Take your DD214 and government identification to any CVSO to obtain your Veteran Status Verification Form.

  3. Visit Any DMV.  Go on-line or call any DMV for an appointment.  Then bring your Veteran Status Verification Form to DMV.  Complete your application; pay any application fees in addition to a $5.00 Veteran designation fee. You must complete all applicable application and testing requirements.
