Military veterans across Kentucky can now secure a driver’s license with a new ‘veteran’ designation. The new license option was approved during the 2012 general assembly session. The word ‘veteran’ will be printed vertically and in capital letters along the right border of the license holder’s photo. To obtain the license, a veteran must present a Department of Defense form that verifies service at the local circuit court clerk’s office. Representative Tanya Pullin says the designation will help veterans receive benefits they have earned.
Ken Lucas, Commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Veteran Affairs, says many businesses in Kentucky want to offer discounts to veterans. He says this designation will help in that process.
