Military veterans who are renewing Kentucky driver's licenses will be able to have a special designation printed on the license.

The General Assembly this year authorized the designation, and the required programming for circuit court clerks' offices was finished on Monday.

If the driver's license holder chooses, the word "veteran" will be printed vertically and in capital letters along the right border of the photo. To obtain the designation, a veteran has to provide the clerk's office with the Defense Department form that verifies service, DD214.

Also, Gov. Steve Beshear announced that veterans who had to renew a license after July 12, when the new legislation became law, but before the programming was available this week can have the license reprinted at no cost through Dec. 31.
