Veterans who are interested in receiving the official “veteran” designation on their state driver’s license or ID card are invited to JJC on Oct. 29 to receive this service. A Service Officer from the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs will be available from noon to 3 p.m. in the Veterans Resource Center, C-1039 on the Main Campus, 1215 Houbolt Road in Joliet.
Veterans must bring two copies of their DD214. After the necessary certification is obtained from the IDVA, the veteran may apply for a new, renewal or updated driver’s license or ID card at any Secretary of State Driver Services facility.
The designation will be no additional cost for first-time driver’s license applicants and driver’s license renewals. If veterans choose to add the designation before their renewal date, they may obtain an updated driver’s license for $5 and an updated ID card for $10. Veterans over the age of 65 can obtain an updated state ID card at no cost.
For more information, contact Cheryl Hlavac at 815-280-2623 or email VeteransBenefits@jjc.edu.
