Motor Carrier Services’ permit center The IDOT’s Office of Vehicle and Motor Carrier Services’ permit center normally open Monday through Friday will resume normal operations at 8 a.m. Dec. 2.
Because the Office of Vehicle and Motor Carrier Services in Ankeny 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.
It is a one-stop source for fuel, trip and oversize load permits; International Registration Plan registration; International Fuel Tax Agreement licensing; and travel authority needed by motor carriers and commercial vehicle operators to operate in Iowa.
