Honorary Driver's License - Spouse
The spouse of a qualified veteran, whose disabilities preclude operating a motor vehicle, is eligible for a free honorary driver's license. Residence and qualifying service terms are the same as stated for a free veteran's driver's license.
The surviving un-remarried spouse of an eligible deceased veteran is eligible for a free honorary driver's license. Residence and qualifying service terms are the same as stated for a free veteran's driver's license.
In order to obtain a free honorary driver's license, take proof of the spouse's qualifying service and residency to a GDVS Veterans Field Service Office. Also provide verification of spouse's disabilities that preclude operating a motor vehicle or a copy of the spouse's death certificate, whichever is applicable. A service officer will verify eligibility and issue a completed Certificate of Eligibility (DS-516).
The spouse must then take the completed DS-516, together with all required identifying documents (birth certificate or passport; Social Security card; two documents showing residential address; and, if applicable, name change documentation) to a Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) office. A DDS representative will administer a vision exam, verify eligibility, and issue a free honorary driver's license.
