Starting on Monday, Sept. 16, two new services will be offered to military veterans by ADOT…

Veterans will have the option to have a designation on their Arizona-issued driver license, commercial driver license, identification card or instruction permit denoting their military service.

In addition, veterans applying for an Arizona commercial driver license will have the option to request a waiver of the skills test if they meet certain requirements.

Veteran designation

Military veterans will be able to request a new credential with the distinguishing mark “VETERAN” added to the front (see example above). A new driver license/identification card application is required for this service along with verification of veteran eligibility.

Veterans can find information explaining the documentation requirements online and learn how to begin the application process.

All requests for the veteran designation mark to be added to a credential must be accomplished in person at an MVD or authorized third party office; there may be a fee for a duplicate credential.

Commercial driver license

The other new service is for veterans applying for an Arizona-issued commercial driver license. Applicants whose position in the military required the operation of a commercial motor vehicle will have the option during the application process to request a waiver of the commercial driver license skills test.

MVD may waive the commercial driver license skills test for applicants who are on active duty in the military or have separated under honorable conditions in the last 90 days and have driven a commercial motor vehicle for two years prior to their application.
