Veteran License Indicator
In Virginia as of July 1, 2018, Veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces have the option of adding a veteran indicator to their driver’s license or ID card. Having the word “veteran” appear on your driver’s license or ID card is a convenient way to demonstrate your veteran status. This option is offered by DMV on behalf of the Department of Veterans Services (DVS).
