IDOT offices close July 4 for holiday
AMES — The Iowa Department of Transportation will be closing its offices for the July 4 holiday.
All business locations will be closed July 4.
All IDOT driver’s license stations will be closed July 4 and 5.
They will be open 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 7; offices are normally closed on Mondays.
The stations will resume normal hours of operation at 8:30 a.m. July 8.
The IDOT’s Office of Vehicle & Motor Carrier Services, normally open Monday through Friday, will be closed July 4.
Normal business hours will resume at 8 a.m. 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 in Ankeny 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.
