Veterans' Services Secretary Coleman Nee today renewed his driver's license as MassDOT RMV Registrar Rachel Kaprielian looked on. Secretary Nee's new license includes the word "Veteran" as part of a new RMV option announced in November 2011 by Lieutenant Governor Timothy Murray.
As of 2012, veterans have the option to have the word “Veteran” appear on their driver’s license or ID card.
The veteran designation is designed to increase awareness about available resources and benefits, and the Department of Veterans’ Services will notify veterans of benefits they may not have accessed. There is no cost for the veteran designation if it is added during license renewal time.
Visit MassDOT RMV on the web to access online license and registration renewal and other services.
