Applying for Veteran’s Resources & ID

Dear Neighbor,

Through their service to our country, veterans have earned a wide range of benefits.

However, not having proof of military service is one of the biggest obstacles veterans face in gaining access to resources, benefits, and services. I was proud to support legislation providing a special “veteran” designation on California driver’s licenses, allowing those who have served our country to access benefits and services without having to carry inconvenient paperwork.

Applying for the veteran designation on your driver’s license or ID card is easy:

  • Stop by your local County Veteran Service Officer with your DD214 for verification. If you need help obtaining your military records, first contact your local County Veteran Service Officer (CVSO).
  • Go to, or call the DMV at 1-800-777-0133, to make an appointment. Bring the application form verified by your CVSO and the small $5 application fee.
