The Arizona Veterans License Plate was designed by ADOT at the request of the veteran community to serve multiple purposes. Two main functions are to allow veterans to display their pride in their honorable military service to our country, and to fund programs for the veterans of Arizona. $17.00 of the plate purchase price each year goes directly to the Arizona Veterans Donation Fund. This $17.00 is also tax deductible.
