Conflict Specific License Plates Now Available to CT Veterans

March 18, 2022

Starting today, Connecticut veterans who served during times of war and in conflict zones will be able apply for a license plate that highlights the specific wartime period they served.

I was pleased to join Governor Lamont, Lt. Governor Bysiewicz, state Department of Veterans Affairs Commissioner Thomas Saadi, state Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Sibongile Magubane and more to announce this initiative.

The wartime veteran license plate initiative comes as a result of legislation passed during the 2021 legislative session to recognize Connecticut veterans' service in specific wartime periods. The new plates will be available to veterans whose discharge papers identify specific periods of conflict, including the Afghanistan War, the Iraq War, Lebanon, Grenada, Panama, Operation Will, the Persian Gulf War, the Vietnam war, the Korean War, and World War II. The license plates will be offered in addition to the state's current veterans license plate.
The license plates are available for passenger, commercial, combination, camper, and camp trailer vehicles. They will cost $27.50. Veterans can request one of the plates by filling out the state's Special Plate Application Form on the state DMV website, here. Applications will be accepted by mail only.
