Active military members are extended exemptions or exceptions to vehicle title, registration, and Florida insurance requirements. Additional information and forms are available from the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

Veterans with a 100-percent service-connected disability are eligible for a no fee driver license or identification card. The same veterans are also entitled to have the veteran’s designation added to their driver license or ID card for no fee, and issuance of one tax-free disabled veteran license plate. The veteran designation can be used to show proof of status for discounts at participating merchants.

Qualified veterans should provide a valid identification card or letter from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, indicating a 100-percent, total and permanent service-connected disability rating.
