49-403.  Disabled veteran — License plates. No fee shall be charged for the registration or reregistration of a motor vehicle owned by a veteran who has established his rights to benefits under the provisions of Public Law 662, 79th Congress, as amended, and Public Law 187, 82nd Congress, as amended. The provisions of this section shall not apply to any vehicle with a registered maximum gross weight over twenty-six thousand (26,000) pounds, nor to any vehicle registered under section 49-434(5), Idaho Code. No fee shall be charged for the registration or reregistration of a motor vehicle owned by a veteran, who is at the time of the registration or reregistration receiving compensation from the veterans administration or in lieu thereof, from any of the armed forces of the United States, for one hundred percent (100%) service-connected disability or for any of the following specific disabilities: Loss or permanent loss of use of one (1) or both feet; loss or permanent loss of use of one (1) or both hands; loss of sight in both eyes or permanent impairment of vision in both eyes to the degree as to constitute virtual blindness. These provisions shall be considered applicable not only as to the vehicle originally purchased under this authorization, but also as to any vehicle subsequently purchased and owned by the same veteran, so long as the privilege shall not extend to more than one (1) vehicle at a time. Special license plates shall be issued for such a vehicle, identified by the inscription "D.V.", and a separate number series shall be used to further identify the license plates so issued. These license plates shall not be issued by the counties but shall be issued by the department. The plates shall be displayed in accordance with the procedure applicable to license plates set forth in section 49-428, Idaho Code. A vehicle displaying plates issued in accordance with the provisions of this section shall be afforded the same privileges specified in section 49-410(7), Idaho Code. Together with a license plate issued pursuant to this section the department shall issue a special placard pursuant to section 49-410(4), Idaho Code.
