DOT offices closing for Thanksgiving
AMES — All Iowa Department of Transportation business locations will be closed Nov. 24 and 25.
Normal operations business hours will resume on Nov. 28, for all offices except Iowa D.O.T. driver’s license stations.
All Iowa D.O.T. driver’s license stations, normally open Tuesday through Saturday, will be closed Nov. 24-26.
In lieu of Saturday service, the stations will be open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 28. Normal business hours will resume at 8:30 a.m. Nov. 29.
Many people might be able to complete driver’s license business online at www.iowadot.gov or at a self-service kiosks. Kiosk users should check the host location’s holiday schedule to determine hours and availability.
Of special note to motor carriers, because the Office of Vehicle & Motor Carrier Services typically experiences a heavy workload on the day following the 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.
