Veteran Designation:

Iowa veterans can now add a Veteran designation to their drivers license or nonoperator identification cards. PLEASE NOTE, this designation can only be added when the license or identification card is being renewed, or, if you are being issued for the first time. (For example, if you are moving in from out of state.)  Your County's Veterans Affairs office will need to complete part of that form before the designation can be added to your drivers license or identification card.
