Instructions for Universal Disability Pass


Register with the Department at

If you held a hunting or fishing license in the past 3 years, your information has been migrated to our new licensing system – COMPASS. Some additional information will be required in order to complete your registration (usually SSN, telephone #, email).

If you are new to the Department, select I’ve never purchased a license from DNR and follow the prompts.

Once completed, you will be able to print out your DNRid card, which displays your DNRid# (upper left corner).

DNR id 


  • Enter your DNRid# on the application – sign and date.
  • Include one of the following:
    1. Copy of your Veterans Affairs disability determination letter
    2. Copy of your disability placard issued by MD Motor Vehicles
    3.  Certification (below) by a licensed health care professional

STEP 3 -- Mail completed application to:

MD DNR Licensing & Registration Service (UDP)
1804 West St Ste 300
Annapolis MD 21401


You will be notified when your application has been approved. At that time, you can return to and reprint your DNRid card. Your card will now display “U” after CRT in the upper right corner. This card is all that will be needed in the future to enjoy the benefits of the Universal Disability Pass.
