How to apply for a license


TEMPORARY EXTENSION LOT – MARCH 2019 FLOOD

Due to extraordinary flooding, the Iowa DOT is allowing existing motor vehicle and travel trailer dealers that are impacted by the floods to apply for a temporary extension lot license with no fee required. This allowance is granted to dealers with an existing valid license located in counties named in any Governor’s Proclamation of Disaster Emergency during March of 2019. The temporary extension lot license will be valid through August 31, 2019, to allow sufficient time for repairs to dealer facilities and/or surrounding roadways and bridges.
