Posted on: August 24, 2015

AMES, Iowa – Aug. 24, 2015 – All Iowa Department of Transportation business locations will be closed Monday, Sept. 7, for the Labor Day holiday. 

Iowa DOT driver's license stations
All Iowa DOT driver’s license stations will be closed Saturday, Sept. 5, and Monday, Sept. 7 (offices are normally closed on Mondays). The stations will resume operations Tuesday, Sept. 8, at 8:30 a.m.

Special note to motor carriers   
The Iowa DOT recommends that commercial vehicle operators plan ahead if they will need services from the Iowa DOT around the Labor Day weekend. Commercial vehicle operators who need oversize/overweight permits for travel in Iowa during the Labor Day weekend should obtain them prior to 4:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 4. 

No movements of oversize/overweight loads will be permitted in Iowa from noon Friday, Sept. 4, until 30 minutes prior to sunrise on Tuesday, Sept. 8. 

Because the permit center typically experiences a heavy workload on the day following the holiday, customers are urged to submit applications for oversize/overweight permits, especially those more than 156,000 pounds, several days before needing the permit.
