IDOT offices close for holidays

Dec 14, 2012

AMES — The Iowa Department of Transportation is announcing its Christmas and New Year’s holiday schedules for the Motor Carrier Permit Center and all Iowa DOT-operated driver’s license stations.

All Iowa DOT business locations will be closed Dec. 25, and Jan. 1.

Motor Carrier Service Permit Center 

The Iowa DOT’s Office of Vehicle and Motor Carrier Services’ permit center will be closed Dec. 25, in observance of the Christmas holiday and Jan. 1, in observance of the New Year’s holiday. The permit center will resume normal operations at 8 a.m. on the Wednesday following the holiday closures.

Because the Office of Vehicle and Motor Carrier Services typically experiences a heavy workload on the day following a 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.

The Office of Vehicle and Motor Carrier Services, located at 6310 SE Convenience Blvd. in Ankeny, is a one-stop source for fuel, trip and oversize load permits; International Registration Plan (IRP) registration; International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) licensing; and travel authority needed by motor carriers and commercial vehicle operators to operate in Iowa.

Iowa DOT’s driver’s license stations

 All Iowa DOT driver’s license stations, normally open Tuesday through Saturday, will be closed Dec. 25, and Jan. 1. Normal business hours will resume at 8:30 a.m. on the Wednesday following the holidays.

For more information contact the Office of Motor Carrier Services at 515-237-3264 or omcs@dot.iowa.gov or the  Office of Driver Services at 515-237-3253 or ods@dot.iowa.gov
