Veteran’s Honorary Designation


New Jersey thanks our military veterans who proudly served to protect our freedom. ToVet License honor you, a special designation has been created for display on your driver’s license or non-driver ID card.

On March 1, 2015, in an effort to provide this recognition to you as quickly as possible, the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) began issuing custom-designed stickers to those veterans who wish to display them on their driver’s licenses or non-driver ID cards. The MVC will notify those of you who requested these stickers at a later date when a permanently imprinted veteran’s designation is available.

You may request your honorary veteran’s recognition sticker in person or by mail.
