a veteran of the United States Armed Forces. To qualify, you must have served in the United States Armed Forces, including a reserve
component or the National Guard, and have been discharged or released from such service under conditions other than dishonorable. If you
are requesting to add the veterans designation to your license, make sure you check the box at the top in Section D.

$30.50 - The Bureau will issue a Regular Non-Commercial Photo Driver’s License.

You are automatically a Regular License holder when you turn 18 years of age.
• In order to be eligible for a regular license, you must have held your PA junior license for 1 year. If you are unsure when you passed
the driving test, it should show on your junior license as the “Issued” date. (If you have a duplicate license, the “Issued” date does not
reflect the day you passed your testing.)
• Since you were required to wait at least six months before you could take your driving test, and you are also required to have held your
PA junior license privileges for at least 1 year, you are not eligible for a regular license if you are less than 17 1/2 years of age.
