Hogan Announces Permanent Vehicle Registration for Disabled Md. Veterans

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md.– Gov. Larry Hogan announced Tuesday that the Maryland Department of Transportation’s Motor Vehicle Administration will begin issuing permanent vehicle registration cards and license plate stickers to Maryland veterans who qualify as 100 percent disabled.

While the stickers and registration cards have been free to qualified veterans for several years, this allows qualified veterans to skip the trip to the MVA to renew their registration, according to the governor's office. This initiative was developed by employees at the MVA and is part of Hogan’s initiative to improve customer service across Maryland state agencies, the governor's office said. 

“Since taking office, our administration has been committed to finding ways to provide veterans the support they have earned and deserve,” Hogan said. "This includes tax relief, down payment assistance for home ownership, and expanded job opportunities. Today’s announcement is another opportunity to give back to our veterans and show our gratitude to those brave men and women who have served our country.”

Qualified veterans do not need to take any action to enjoy this new benefit.  The MVA will begin mailing the permanent registration cards and stickers on Aug. 1 to approximately 5,200 Maryland veterans who qualify as 100 percent disabled as determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.  Prior to this initiative, qualified Maryland veterans had to renew their vehicle registration, free of charge, every two years at an MVA office.
