Saratoga County wants state to waive license fee for vets
SARATOGA COUNTY Saratoga County supervisors on Tuesday called on the state Department of Motor Vehicles to not require veterans to pay to have a veteran notation added to their driver’s license.
Under a law that took effect last fall, honorably discharged veterans can have a notation of their veteran status added to their license or identification card. It is done for free at license renewal, but to update a current license costs $12.50.
“Veterans who wish to proudly display their service to our country on their driver’s license or nondriver identification should not have to wait until their regular renewal date to avoid a fee from the New York state Department of Motor Vehicles,” said County Clerk Craig A. Hayner.
