Welcome to my New York State Veterans information page.

Special Drivers Licenses

The option of designating military service on their driver's licenses and taking advantage of the Westchester County Veterans Discount Program are available to our veterans, so that they can receive the benefits they deserve.

Veterans currently have to carry around their DD-224 forms to prove they have served in the military. Under the new legislation, veterans can apply for a special designation on their driver's licenses through the state DMV. The special licenses are intended to eliminate the need for veterans to carry separate documentation proving their military service in order to take advantage of discounts or other programs available to vets.
