Iowans Can Now Renew License Online
About 284-thousand Iowa drivers will be able to renew their drivers license online, starting today.
Iowa Department of Transportation director Paul Trombino cautions drivers to beware of imposter websites…
“The only place to renew your driver’s license online is through www.iowadot.gov or our mobile app,” Trombino says. “That’s really the place to come. It’s secure. That’s where you’re going to input all your information and do all that activity. All the rest of them are really giving you false information.”
It costs 20-dollars to renew a driver’s license and there’s a dollar-and-a-half “convenience fee” for renewing online. Drivers will only be able to renew online every other time, since the duration of the license will increase from five to eight years. Drivers with medical or vision problems are to go into a D-O-T facility or country treasurer’s office to renew their license and there are a series of questions in the online format to screen out people who’ve had recent eye trauma or vision problems.
