Gov. Peter Shumlin and Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner
Robert Ide announced that effective Sept. 18 the State of Vermont
is offering driver's licenses and non-driver ID cards designating
"My administration is committed to doing everything it can to
recognize and celebrate the remarkable sacrifice our veterans have
made," said Gov. Shumlin. "By adding a veteran designation on
driver's licenses and ID cards to the several veteran designated
license plates currently available, the DMV is further
acknowledging the sacrifice of these brave men and women."
"The increased visibility that this designation provides our
service members will aid in providing all veterans the services and
benefits they have so rightfully earned," added Commissioner Ide.
The feature will provide valuable information to first responders
and will help the Office of Veterans' Services notify veterans of
benefits they are eligible to receive.
Veterans' licenses will be available at all six DMV branch
offices and two mobile units as of Sept. 18, and is a free service
to all veterans upon license renewal. All those interested should
register with the Office of Veteran's Services before applying.
