9/10/2013 2:44:00 PM MVD offers new services for military veterans
Effective Sept. 16, two new services will be offered to military veterans by the Arizona Department of Transportation. Veterans will have the option to have a designation on their Arizona-issued driver license, commercial driver license, identification card or instruction permit denoting their military service. In addition, veterans applying for an Arizona commercial driver license will have the option to request a waiver of the skills test if they meet certain requirements.
The first new service will allow a military veteran to request a new credential with the distinguishing mark "VETERAN" added to the front. A new driver license/identification card application is required for this service along with verification of veteran eligibility.
Information explaining the documentation requirements can be obtained online at azdot.gov/mvd/driver-services/MilitaryPersonnel/veteran-designation or by visiting any local ADOT Motor Vehicle Division office or authorized third party office that processes credentials. All requests for the veteran designation mark to be added to a credential must be accomplished in person at an MVD or authorized third party office; there may be a fee for a duplicate credential.
