NEW ORLEANS — The state Office of Motor Vehicles will have its mobile unit at the National World War II Museum from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday morning and will open 44 offices across the state during those hours so veterans can get new driver’s licenses or ID cards honoring their service.
The new licenses can be used at retailers that have discounts for veterans but won’t substitute for the official papers needed for state or federal veterans’ programs, said Robin Keller, spokeswoman for state Veterans Affairs Secretary Lane Carson.
Those who are getting a duplicate license or renewing their licenses will have to pay the usual fees. There won’t be any fee for those who turn in current licenses or ID cards for the new ones.
Veterans must bring proof of their service to get the new cards.
Veterans can get the licenses before and after Saturday at their local Office of Motor Vehicles.
