If you are a qualified U.S. military veteran who was honorably discharged, and you have a NY State driver license, learner permit or non-driver photo ID card, you may have the word “Veteran” printed on your photo document.
Once you receive the veteran status designation, “VETERAN” will be printed on all future photo documents when you renew or replace them.
You can request Veterans Status when you renew or upgrade your license. To request Veterans Status without renewing or upgrading your license, choose the “license amendment” selection on the appointment booking calendar.
Bring with You:
- Proof honorable discharge from the United States military. Must be original or a certified copy. (qualifying forms include DD-214, DD-215, WD AGO 53, WD AGO 55, WD AGO 53-55, NAVPERS 553, NAVMC 78PD, NAVCG 553)
- Completed Form MV-44
- Current Driver License or Photo Document
