California veterans can again display their status on their license plates. A new law brought back the California specialty license plates at the request of veterans. The license plates had been available but were replaced by an “Honoring Veterans” version. “Honoring Veterans” license plates are still available for non-veterans.

Veteran license plates can be customized with the distinctive military branch or veterans service organization logo of choice. Proceeds from the sale of these plates help support efforts of CalVet and 56 county veteran service offices that connect veterans and their families with the benefits and services they have earned through military service.

To reserve a veteran license plate, visit the CalVet website to download the application or call 877-741-8532. Honoring Veterans license plates can be ordered by following that same link.

The veteran license plate program is a partnership between the California Department of Veterans Affairs the California Department of Motor Vehicles, and the California Association of County Veterans Services Officers, Inc.
