Kentucky veterans are able to obtain driver’s licenses imprinted with the newly authorized “veteran” designation, which became available Sept. 24, according to a news release from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
Veterans must present a Department of Defense form 214 to verify service when they visit Circuit Court clerk’s office. There is also a $20 renewal fee.
However, veterans who renewed licenses between July 12, when the law authorizing the veteran designation went into effect, and Sept. 24, when the designation became available, can obtain a replacement without paying the standard $12 fee for a duplicate licenses.
That waiver expires Dec. 31.
Veterans who have not yet renewed can request the designation at license renewal time for a fee of $20.
Veterans who have not yet renewed and who wish to obtain a license with the designation before their renewal date may do so but must pay the $12 fee of a duplicate license.
