Tennessee Offers Veterans Designated Driver's License

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/NewsChannel 5) - Honorably discharged veterans may now obtain specially designated driver's licenses in Tennessee.

The licenses recognizing veterans' military service were authorized under a 2011 state law, but the designation could not be included until a recent redesign of Tennessee driver's licenses.

The announcement was made Thursday by The Department of Safety and Homeland Security in conjunction with the Department of Veterans Affairs Commission.

The new licenses feature an image of the state Capitol and a skyline of other recognizable structures such as the Pyramid in Memphis, the Sunsphere in Knoxville and the skyscraper known as the "Batman Building" in Nashville.

Veterans must present their discharge papers to receive the special designation on their licenses or photo ID cards. No extra fee applies for the designation when licenses are renewed.
