Veteran/Military Identifier

Colorado statute allows eligible applicants to add a veteran indicator, military identifier, or both, to their Driver License or ID card.

The word “VETERAN” may be printed on the Driver License or ID card if the applicant is a veteran of the United States Armed Forces and presents one of the following documents at a Driver License Office:

  • Valid military identification card
  • DD214 form issued by the U.S. government indicating an honorable discharge (a photocopy or electronic version is acceptable)

MILITARY IDENTIFIER may be added to the Driver License or ID card for applicants who have served or are currently serving in the United States Armed Forces.  Only one military identifier may be added to any document (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, National Guard or Navy). Military identifiers from other states do not transfer – applicants must present one of the following documents at a Driver License Office to add a military identifier:

  • Valid military identification card
  • DD214 form issued by the U.S. government (a photocopy or electronic version is acceptable)
  • Valid common access card

Once the veteran indicator and/or military identifier has been added to the Driver License or ID card, additional documentation is not required at renewal.
