North Carolina’s Driver License Offers “Veteran” Label

Qualified North Carolina military veterans are now able to carry the designation “VETERAN” on their driver licenses and identification cards.

Thanks to a law passed by the General Assembly, veterans who have been honorably discharged from the US Armed Forces who present their DD-214 discharge form can apply at a driver license office for the new designation. This designation will assist military veterans to obtain military discounts from a wide variety of retailers and service providers without having to show their discharge form. Putting the designation on the driver license enables the state’s veterans to show their photo ID and their veteran status at the same time.

Veterans who are interested in applying for the designation should take their DD-214 discharge form to their local driver license office to show they have been honorably discharged.  They can request the designation be added to their license at their next renewal at no additional harge.  If they would like to add the designation at any other time, they may present the discharge form and request a duplicate license at a driver license office.  There will be a charge for the duplicate license.
