Driver's license/ID

Attention iconHours changing July 1

Beginning July 1, all Iowa DOT Driver and Identification Service Centers will move their days of operation to Monday – Friday. This will help us to support our customers better by allowing locations to be open more hours each week, which means we will have more appointment times available. These new hours of operation are also more in-line to our county partners and other DOT locations. We are operating on an appointment preferred basis. Schedule an appointment
