Veterans Designation on Drivers' License or NonOperator ID
Honorably discharged veterans who have active duty experience are eligible to have a “veteran” designation placed on their driver’s license or nonoperator identification card. There are two ways to receive the designation. Veterans can take a copy of their DD 214 (Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty from the Department of Defense) directly to a driver’s license issuance location, or, veterans can present their DD 214 to their County Veterans Affairs Office, request a completed Iowa DOT application form, and then take the completed form to a driver's license issuance location.
A link to the required form can be found by clicking here. The Jones County Veteran Affairs Office can be reached by calling (319) 462-5311 and the Jones County Treasurers Office can be reached at (319) 462-3550.
