    At the present time I live in Ontario, Canada. I was initially licensed to drive in Iowa in 1968. For reasons passing logical understanding the Province of Ontario needs me to prove that I was licensed at that time. As you can expect I don’t have a lot of documentation from 52 years ago. I know I completed my driving tests at the Ida Grove Licensing office in Ida County. Would you have any record that documents my licensing at that time? If you have such a record how would I access it?

    Thank you for any efforts you can make toward this search.
