The Iowa Department of Transportation says from this day forward, driver’s license services can now be accomplished by appointment only.
They will no longer accept walk-in customers at the driver’s license service centers around the state.
Officials began the appointment-only model back on March 16th as a way to social distance in the pandemic.
They say they’ve received an overwhelmingly positive response from customers who are able to get in and out in a matter of minutes without a long wait time, so they will make that change permanent.
You will want to schedule an appointment weeks ahead, as D-O-T officials say appointment times are booking up quickly because of the backlog caused by the pandemic.
The length of time until the next available appointment is averaging about three-to-four weeks out.
