Iowa DOT offices closing over Memorial Day weekend

May 18, 2017

AMES – All Iowa Department of Transportation business locations will be closed May 29 in honor of Memorial Day.


Driver’s license stations

All Iowa D.O.T. driver’s license stations will be closed May 27 and May 29; the offices are normally closed on Mondays. The stations will resume operations at 8:30 a.m. May 30.

Many people might be able to complete driver’s license business online at www.iowadot.gov or at one of the self-service kiosks. Kiosk users should check the host location’s holiday schedule to determine hours and availability.


Motor carriers

The Iowa D.O.T. recommends that commercial vehicle operators plan ahead if they will need services from the Iowa D.O.T. immediately following the Memorial Day weekend.

Commercial vehicle operators who need oversize/overweight permits for travel in Iowa on May 30 should obtain them prior to 4:30 p.m. May 26.

No movements of oversize/overweight loads will be permitted in Iowa from noon May 26, until 30 minutes prior to sunrise on May 30.

Because the permit center typically experiences a heavy workload on the day following the holiday, Iowa D.O.T. officials are urging customers to submit applications for oversize/overweight permits, especially those more than 156,000 pounds, several days before needing the permit.
