How To Get Iowa Driving Records
Obtaining a copy of your driving record is fairly easy to do. You can do so in person, by mail, or online. If you want to obtain someone else’s driving record, you must do so in person or by mail, even if you have written consent.
Iowa Driving Records By Mail
You will need to start by completing a Privacy Act Agreement For Request of Motor Vehicle Records (Form 431069). If you are requesting just your own driving record, you only need to fill in Sections A and D. You will need to take this agreement and your driver’s license to a local Iowa DOT office.
If you decided to request your Iowa driver record by mail, you will need to include the agreement form, a copy of your driver’s license, and payment for the service. Both in person and by mail fees are $5.50. You can mail your request to the Office of Driver Services at the Iowa Department of Transportation.
Iowa Driving Records Online
You can easily order a certified copy of your driving record online. Go to the Iowa DOT website. You will need to supply your name, birth date, social security number, and driver’s license number. The fee is $7 and can be paid with a debit or credit card.
If you are just ordering a copy for your own personal use, we suggest getting the non-certified copy. This is available online at no charge for all residents of Iowa. Keep in mind that non-certified copies are not official documents that can be used for legal purposes.
