Gov. Nikki Haley, DMV announce "VETERAN" designation on driver license
web posted September 8 2012
COLUMBIA – Governor Nikki Haley and South
Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Director Kevin Shwedo,
joined by veterans of the United States Armed Forces from across the
state, announced Friday the availability of a “VETERAN” designation on
driver licenses, identification cards and beginner permits for
individuals who served honorably in the United States Armed Forces
during an event at DMV Headquarters.
The VETERAN designation applies only to individuals who served
honorably as members of the United States Armed Forces. To apply,
veterans must present their Form DD214 (Certificate of Release or
Discharge from Active Duty), which indicates an honorable discharge. No
other proof of service will be accepted. Military dependents, spouses
or civilian employees on military bases are not eligible.
The cost to add the VETERAN designation to a driver license,
identification card or beginner permit is $1.00. If a customer adds the
designation without changing or renewing his license, he will pay only
the $1.00 fee. However, if the customer conducts another license
transaction, he will pay $1.00 plus the required transaction fee. For
example, a customer that adds the designation when he renews his
10-year driver license would pay $25.00 plus the $1.00 fee. A customer
who changes his address and adds the designation would pay $10.00 plus
the $1.00 fee. Each time a customer changes or renews his credential,
he must pay an additional $1.00 fee to add the designation.
Because state law requires documentation of military service, veterans
applying for the designation must visit a DMV office. To get the best
service in the shortest amount of time, DMV recommends that customers
visit offices on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Customers
should also remember that the days before and after a holiday are
extremely busy at DMV.
