To get the veteran identifier on your driver license or ID card:

  1. Verify your eligibility with the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs. Contact the Veterans Benefits Resource Center at: 1-800-WIS-VETS or VetExpress at https://applications.dva.wisconsin.gov/VetExpress/
    Contact your local County Veterans Service Officer, www.wicvso.org, to obtain certification of your veteran status for the identifier.
  2. Once you've established eligibility, you may apply at the Wisconsin DMV. If renewing or getting your first driver license or ID card, you'll need to visit your local DMV. If it's not time to renew, you have the option to get a duplicate product online at www.wisconsindmv.gov. Under Online Services you will find applications for duplicate driver licenses and ID cards.
