Iowa DOT to issue restricted commercial driver’s licenses remotely

Posted on: April 02, 2020

ANKENY, Iowa – April 2, 2020 – With spring planting season just around the corner, many Iowa farm workers will need to obtain a restricted commercial driver’s license to assist with farm operations.

To limit the number of people who come into the service centers and reduce their potential exposure to COVID-19, the Iowa Department of Transportation will be reviewing applications and issuing restricted commercial driver’s licenses remotely and mailing them out to these customers. If you need to obtain a restricted commercial driver’s license, please contact our CDL Program administrators at cdl.program@iowadot.us.

What is a restricted commercial driver’s license?
A restricted commercial driver's license may be issued to eligible suppliers or employees of suppliers of agricultural chemicals, fertilizer, seed or animal feeds to operate a Class B or Class C vehicle for up to 180 days during a calendar year.
