Because the permit center typically
experiences a heavy workload on the day following a holiday, customers are
urged to submit applications for oversize permits, especially those weighing
more than 156,000 pounds, several days before the permit is needed.
The Office of Vehicle and Motor Carrier
Services’ permit center, located at 6310 SE Convenience Blvd. in Ankeny, is a
one-stop source for fuel, trip and oversize load permits; International Registration
Plan (IRP) registration; International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) licensing; and
travel authority needed by motor carriers and commercial vehicle operators to
operate in Iowa.
