|Permanent Vehicle Registration Fee for Disabled Veterans |
One-time registration fee for motor vehicle registration for service-connected disabled veterans in receipt of compensation. Disabled veterans must provide proof that the qualifying disability is connected with service in the U.S. Armed Forces. This proof must be in the form of a letter from the US Department of Veterans’ Affairs or any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. To request a letter, call VA at 800-827-1000. The letter must certify:
- You are a service member discharged or released under honorable conditions;
- The service was for not less than 90 consecutive days (or the discharge or release was based on a service connected injury or illness prior to completion of the minimum period of service), and;
- The disability is service related.
The State of Oregon offers veterans a distinct license plate to display their service in the Armed Forces through the Military Veteran Recognition License Plate Program. For $10 every two years, an eligible veteran may register a Veteran Recognition Plate with military insignia or blank Veteran Recognition Plate. A variety of license plates relating to military service are available and a portion of the fees from the "VETERAN" plate helps support the Oregon Veterans' Home.
The veteran must provide proof of military service and/or proof of award of a military related medal. To obtain a “VETERAN” license plate take your DD214 to your local DMV Office. License plates may have oneof the seals from all five services branches. For more information about the medals that may be placed on the plate click here
