Disabled Vet License Plates


Sgt eve

Question

I received my disabled vet plates today. I'm not trying to sound greedy at all but when I filled out the form I put down both of our cars, since I drive both and they both are in my name. Will those come at a later time? My registration is already due and and I don't want to get a ticket but I don't want to pay to get the other car registered and then the plates come in. Any experience in this anybody? Thanks so much.

If you are approved for vet plates you should have something in writing stating that for you to get the plates. My suggestion for you is to not pay any registration but keep copies of your letter or memo authorizing you the vet plates. I know here in my state, we will be reimbursed for registration if we provide proof of the entitled benefit. Perhaps you should contact your local Department of Motor Vehicles in the meantime.

To all,

To my knowledge, in the state of Oregon, your are only allowed one set of disabled vet plates. Most vets put these on the vehicle that is the most expensive to license.

In Texas the Veteran can have two sets if the vehicle is registered to them but the second set cost the same as all the others. The first cost 3 bucks and the other one is usually a little over 50.

:) AZ is a cheapo! $25 for the vet plate and it is only ONE vehicle, so of course you use it on the newest car because that will be the highest. AZ is a rip off on plates. The plates if you want prestige (your name or whatever on the plate) will run $50.

It all depends upon the state. Tennessee allows 2 vehicles for free registration and plates. They cost nothing and you are not required to pay wheel tax on either of them. Afetr that you can still get vet plates but they are not "permanent" and cost the same as anyone else's.

I actually was stopped because the cop said my plates were expired. I had to explain what "perm" in the registration sticker spot meant.

Again, this varies by state...

Woops. should have said you have to be 100%, either schedular or TDIU to get the plates in Tennessee. You'll have to have a special letter from the local VARO. I think it took about 2 weeks to get mine after requesting it on the 1-800 number.

Again rules vary from state to state.

In most states, the plates can only be used on the car/truck they were registered for. In my state, you only get one set free for one car/truck.

If the preprinted form you received with the plates shows both cars/trucks, I'd really be surprised.

Obviously, you should call the local/state tag office to try to get a correct answer for your area. Laws vary considerably from state to state.

Most states offer only one set of plates at a reduced cost UNLESS you are 100 percent, P/T. Then most will provide two at the no tax/reduced tax rate.

In Nebraska, disabled veteran plates don't reduce the fees or taxes. When you get disabled veteran plates you pay all the regular fees and taxes and an additional $5 for the disabled veteran plate. This even includes 100% T&P veterans

To all,

I should havew stated that I had to pay the first time registration fee for Oregon to get my permanent disabled plates. The minimum disability in Oregon is 10%.

There are other specialty plates available. I also have a "veteran" plate on our car. It cost more than standard plate, but part of the money goes to the Oregon Veterans Home in The Dalles.

Your post probably answers the vet's (original) question , since he is from Texas.

In the state of FL, if your are 100% disabilied you get one free tag, all others cost the normal cost.Just wondering did or does anyone else think that having a DAV Tag authorized you for hadicap parking (marked)? I was lead to belive that the DAV tag gave you the use of handicap parking, but I checked with the state of FL DOT he said NO. You have to have another doctors statement indicating you have heart or other conditions that will give you the hadicap parking. I also seen it used to say if you have problems walking 200 ft is not a reason anymore. Just wondering...

Thanks

That sounds like a bunch of crap. They need to get with the program. Contact your state representatives.

IN CALIFORNIA YOU HAVE TO GET YOUR DOCTOR TO FILL A FORM OUT THAT YOU GET AT THE DMV. IF YOU ARE 100% FROM THE VA YOU GET FREE CAR REGISTRATION ON ONE VEHICLE AND NEW PLATE WITH DV OR DP ON THE LAST 2 LETTERS IN THE PLATE NUMBER. DV FOR DISABLED VET AND DP FOR DISABLED PERSON. OF COURSE THERE IS A DIFFERNT FORM NEEDED TO GET THE FREE REGISTRATION ALONG WITH A DOCTORS NOTE. IT WAS VERY TIME CONSUMING THE DMV WAS JUST LIKE THE VA ASSHOLES. IT SEEMS THAT ALL GOVERMENT AGENCIES MAKE YOU FIGHT FOR BENIFITS.

Does anyone have a link to a web site that shows all the states that offer reduced fees for disabled plates for disabled veterans? I'm going to send this to my state representative.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
