Gov. Hogan Announces Permanent Vehicle Registration for Disabled Veterans

On Tuesday, July 19, Governor Larry Hogan announced that the MVA will begin issuing permanent vehicle registration cards and license plate stickers to Maryland veterans who qualify as 100 percent disabled.  Stickers and registration cards have been free for many years, but this will allow veterans to skip the trip to the MVA for renewal.  This initiative is part of Gov. Hogan’s plan to improve customer service and to provide veterans the support they have earned and deserve.


New Driver’s Licenses in Maryland

Starting Monday, July 11, 2016, the MVA began issuing all driver’s licenses, learner’s permits, and identification (ID) cards through the U.S. mail within 7 to 10 business days.  Maryland’s new cards feature multiple layers of security to help prevent identity theft and fraud.
