License Rule Changes Approved by Transportation Commission

The Iowa Transportation Commission has approved some driver’s license rule changes to comply with changes passed by lawmakers in the last legislative session. D-O-T Motor Vehicle Division director, Melissa Gillett, says one change involves school licenses.

Those who are 14-and-half can get a minor school license and drive to and from school and school activities by themselves between 5 a-m and 10 p-m.

Gillette says they did have one question about home-school kids being able to use a minor school license for farm work.

 

The Transportation also approved rules allowing drivers who have a commercial driver’s license or C-D-L to renew online.

 

She says the rules create the online C-D-L renewals with a few special provisions those license holders must meet to renew online.
