Kansas Disabled Veteran Plate
A disabled veteran plate may be issued for an auto, motorcycle or truck registered for 20,000 lbs. or less which is titled in Kansas in the name of the disabled veteran or leased by the same.
Effective 7/1/2022 there are 2 types of disabled veteran license plates.
- For a Disabled veteran who is also a disabled citizen and provides validations per K.S.A. 8-1,124, Kansas continues to have the plate with the international wheelchair emblem.
- For a disabled veteran who does not meet the criteria of a disabled citizen or who chooses only to meet the qualifications for a disabled veteran, we have a disabled veteran plate without the international wheelchair emblem.
To qualify you must:
- Be a Kansas resident.
- Have served in the armed forces of the United States and are entitled to compensation for a service-connected disability of at least 50% according to the laws administered by the veterans administration, or
Be entitled to compensation for the loss, or permanent loss of use, of one or both feet or one or both hands, or for permanent visual impairment of both eyes to a prescribed degree, or be responsible for the transportation of a disabled veteran who meets the qualifications above.
- Vehicle must be titled in Kansas in the name of the applicant, or the disabled veteran must be listed as lessee with a leasing company from which the applicant is leasing the vehicle, or the person requesting the plate must be responsible for the transportation of a qualified disabled veteran.
