Plan ahead: DOT offices closed Labor Day weekend

Aug 28, 2017

AMES — All Iowa Department of Transportation business locations will be closed Sept. 4 for the Labor Day holiday.

All Iowa D.O.T. driver’s license stations will be closed Saturday and Sept. 4. The offices are normally closed on Mondays. The stations will resume operations at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 5.

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.

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 Labor Day weekend. Commercial vehicle operators who need oversize/overweight permits for travel in Iowa on Sept. 5, should obtain them before 4:30 p.m. Friday.

No movements of oversize/overweight loads will be permitted in Iowa from noon Friday until 30 minutes before sunrise on Sept. 5.

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