How do I apply for a drivers license if I am relocating to Iowa? Iowa
Relocating to Iowa and Becoming a New ResidentAfter moving to Iowa, relocation is considered official after:
- Registering to vote.
- Accepting permanent employment.
- Enrolling your kids in public school.
- Living in IA for 30 continuous days.
- Proof of identity and age.
- Proof of Iowa residency.
- Proof of your Social Security number.
- Your out-of-state drivers license, which you must eventually surrender.
- Cash or a check to pay the driver license fee.
NOTE: Iowa residency does not apply to out-of-state students attending college in Iowa.
Possible Driver License Testing
The best way to prepare is by studying the state's drivers manual. All test questions are derived from information addressed in the manual, including road sign identification, car emergencies, and determining proper driving speeds. You can obtain a hardcopy from your local DOT office, or by downloading from the DOT website.
Next, after studying the manual, take at least one practice test. These online exams mirror the actual tests, allowing you to assess if you're test-prepared.
When you arrive at the DOT test site, have:
- A working vehicle with proof of registration and insurance.
- Your out-of-state driver license, if valid. If not, another licensed driver must accompany you.
