New Veteran Designation on DL/ID for California Residents

The men and women who serve and have served our great country through military service. U.S. military veterans can now apply for a special “VETERAN” designation on their driver licenses and identification cards in California, honoring our military members for their service.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles, along with the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet), has launched a new program honoring U.S. veterans by allowing vets to apply for the special designation.

The program is the result of Assembly Bill 935, authored by Assemblyman Jim Frazier (D- Oakley).

There is a one-time $5 fee for the veteran designation in addition to other DMV fees for applications and renewals of licenses or identification cards. Please visit the veterans section on the DMV website for more information about the application process for the veteran designation.
According to the DMV, the application process for the veteran designation is as follows:

Get Records: Find your military discharge certificate (DD214). If you need assistance obtaining your military records, then contact any County Veteran Service Officer (CVSO).

Visit Any County Veteran Service Office (CVSO): Take your DD214 and government identification to any CVSO to obtain your Veteran Status Verification Form. For faster CVSO service, make an appointment with any CVSO by calling 844-737-8838 or find your local CVSO here.

Visit Any DMV: Go online or call DMV for an appointment. Bring your Veteran Status Verification Form to any DMV field office. Pay any application fees and complete all application and testing requirements. To schedule an appointment at any DMV field office, visit the DMV website or call (800) 777-0133.

Once approved, the new ID card or driver license will include the word “VETERAN” printed on the face of the card issued to the veteran who applied for the designation.

That's great Ohio has had this for several years and it doesn't cost a thing, it includes the words Armed Forces on the bottom of your drivers license. Home Depot will give veterans 10% off when you show them this, I've used it several times.
