AMES, Iowa – June 20, 2014 – The Iowa Department of Transportation will be closing its offices for the July 4 holiday.
All business locations will be closed Friday, July 4.
Iowa DOT driver's license stations
All Iowa DOT driver’s license stations will be closed Friday and Saturday, July 4 and 5. They will be open Monday, July 7, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (offices are normally closed on Mondays). The stations will resume normal hours of operation on Tuesday, July 8, at 8:30 a.m.
Office of Vehicle & Motor Carrier Services
The Iowa DOT’s Office of Vehicle & Motor Carrier Services, normally open Monday through Friday, will be closed Friday, July 4. Normal business hours will resume at 8 a.m. Monday, July 7. This includes the permit center.
Because the permit center typically experiences a heavy workload on the day following the holiday, customers are urged to submit applications for oversize permits, especially those more than 156,000 pounds, several days before needing the permit.
The 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.
