Veterans Designation Now Available on PA Driver Licenses, ID Cards, Says Simmons
3/5/2014
HARRISBURG – 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, Rep. Justin Simmons (R-Lehigh/Northampton) announced today.

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. The designation on the license/ID card is more convenient and safer for veterans than carrying cumbersome documents that may include sensitive personal information. 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. To qualify, an applicant would have to be a person who has served in the United States Armed Forces, including a reserve unit or the National Guard, and who was discharged or released from such service under conditions other than dishonorable.

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.
