Local Veterans Begin Applying For New License Cards

Local Veterans Begin Applying For New License CardsCREAMERY PA – Gov. Tom Corbett last week introduced Pennsylvania’s new “veterans’ designation” for state driver licenses and identification cards. An American flag with the word “Veteran” beneath it will appear on the front of both, according to Disabled American Veterans Chapter 25 in Creamery.

Pottsgrove American Legion Post Adjutant Billy Worrell indicated local veterans were already applying for their new cards.

Qualified applicants for the designation include those who were honorably released or discharged from active duty for service in the United States Armed Forces, including its reserves or the National Guard.

There is no fee for the designation, but regular card renewal or duplicate fees still apply. Forms for driver’s license or ID renewals and duplicates now have a box for applicants to certify that they are a veteran, and to have the designation added. Once added to a card, it will automatically appear with each renewal.

Veterans holding a non-commercial driver’s license or identification card can immediately apply for the designation at the state Department of Motor Vehicles website, here.
