State Senator Hugh T. Farley (R, C, I – Schenectady) announced that starting today, military veterans -- who are residents of New York State -- will be able to apply for a special designation on their State driver’s license. Those interested individuals cannot apply by phone or online but must apply in person at a Department of Motor Vehicles office. The veteran status will be printed on all future NYS DMV photo documents. For more information, visit
