For the health and safety of our clientele and staff due to COVID-19, DVS offices are not meeting face to face with clients at this time, however the DVS benefits team is available to assist veterans and their families remotely, communicating via mail, email and telephone during normal business hours. Calls will be returned within 1 business day. Note: Return calls may appear as a Blocked Call. Click here for point of contact details for each DVS office. We are working hard to safely reopen many of our offices on a by-appointment basis and expect to begin once again assisting veterans and their family members in-person at select locations as early as June 29, 2020.

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).
