Alaska adopts voluntary invisible disability designator on ID card/Driver’s License
JUNEAU, AK – In partnership with the Invisible Disabilities Association, the state of Alaska Legislature authorized their DMV to provide a method for a person to voluntarily designate on a driver’s license or identification card, a discreet symbol that identifies a person with a medically verified cognitive, mental, neurological, or physical disability or combination. The primary purpose of this designator is to alert law enforcement to a person’s non-apparent disability during a traffic stop, or other routine contact. Learn more here!
The State of Alaska is the first state to offer to qualifying individuals a voluntary disability designator on a driver’s license or identification card. Under a Memorandum of Agreement with the Invisible Disabilities Association (IDA), the DMV uses the IDA’s “i” symbol as the designator.
