Veterans Designation Now Available on PA Driver Licenses
3/6/2014
QUESTION: I heard something about an official state identification card for military veterans. Can you tell me more about this?

ANSWER: Pennsylvania’s servicemen and servicewomen are now able to have their veteran status included on their state-issued driver licenses or non-driver identification cards.

With the designation, veterans will be able to more easily demonstrate their veteran status and to take advantage of special offers and discounts available from businesses that choose to offer them. However, further documentation will still be required to obtain VA benefits.

Under Act 176 of 2012, the veterans designation is made available to persons producing valid honorable military discharge papers.

The veterans designation is available to eligible veterans at no charge at the next date of renewal of their license or ID card. If veterans want the designation prior to their next renewal, they will have to pay a fee for a duplicate license. The fee for a basic duplicate driver’s license is $13.50; fees for other types of licenses vary.

Pennsylvania is blessed with a large population of military veterans. Whenever America has needed them, Pennsylvanians have answered the call to duty to defend our country. From World War II all the way up to the most recent engagements in Iraq and Afghanistan, residents from our Commonwealth served in the armed forces in distant lands in an effort to protect us from danger.

If you are a military veteran or someone you know served honorably in the armed forces, you can learn more about this new designation by visiting my website at RepRoae.com and clicking on the “Veterans Designation” link on the right-hand side.

Pennsylvania is grateful for the service of its veterans and proud to offer this new designation for their benefit.
