New York State Peddler’s License
New York State Veterans with other than dishonorable discharges from the United States Armed Forces are eligible to apply for a free lifetime Veterans Peddler’s License provided the Veteran served overseas in peace or war.
This license provides Veterans and surviving spouses with the right to peddle, vend, and sell goods, wares or merchandise, or solicit trade on the highways within a specific jurisdiction.
The permit does not supersede any restrictions placed by City, Town, or Village Clerks. Additionally, there are special licenses available for Veterans with disabilities in New York City. The City, Town, or Village Clerks are responsible for issuing the licenses.
