Alabama Offering New Veterans Driver's License

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -

Alabama veterans will have the option to display proof of their military service on their driver's license.

A law sponsored by Democratic Rep. Marcel Black of Tuscumbia provided for the Veterans Driver's License. The state Department of Public Safety says the licenses will be available beginning May 1. Black says veterans can show their status to obtain benefits, rebates and accommodations.

To get a license, a veteran must visit a Department of Public Safety license examining office and present a DD-214 form from the Department of Defense that shows a status of honorable or general under honorable conditions.

There is no additional charge for someone getting a new license or renewing a license. But a veteran seeking the license before the renewal date must pay $18.50 for a duplicate license.
