Reminder: Special Drivers Licenses now available

The option of designating military service on your driver's license is now available to New York Veterans.

Veterans currently have to carry around their DD-224 forms to prove they have served in the military. Veterans can now 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 veterans.
