ATLANTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- All military veterans who live in Georgia can request a special license or identification card denoting their service.
In the past, any veteran that did not meet the established eligibility and/or service requirements was not able to request the license.
An honorably discharged veteran can get a free veteran’s driver’s license if two criteria are met:
- Georgia residency
- Service during a recognized period of war or conflict.
Starting April 15, a veteran who does not meet these criteria may still apply for a veteran’s driver’s license, but normal license fees will apply.
"Now every veteran, regardless of service, will be able to proudly carry a Georgia Veteran’s Driver’s License/ID Card," said Georgia Department of Veterans Service Commissioner Pete Wheeler in a news release.
