2020 Iowa DOT Driver's Education Conference

Special Message

As we have all witnessed, these are unprecedented and rapidly changing times. We have been closely monitoring the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) information being put forth by the Department of Public Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as the World Health Organization, and we, have concluded that it is necessary to cancel the Behind-the-Wheel instructor annual conference that was scheduled for April 18, 2020.

Behind the Wheel instructors needing to satisfy the requirement of attending an annual state-sponsored or state-approved behind-the-wheel instructor refresher course may now participate in our online course. This course was designed to replace the annual conference this year and will fulfill the instructor renewal requirement. All Behind the Wheel instructors have been sent an invitation from the MVD Education and Information team with instructions on how to access the course. For those who haven’t and would like to participate, please email Iowa DOT Behind the Wheel at
