View or change the mailing address you have on file with the Iowa DOT. Please note that completing this service online will only update your mailing address in the DOT’s records; you will not receive a new driver’s license or identification card with your new address in the mail. How do I get a new card with my new address?
Do you fly commercially or need to enter a federal building?If so, beginning October 2020 your driver's license/ID card must contain a gold star in the upper right corner (be Real ID compliant). If your card does not contain this gold star and you will be flying commercially or entering a federal building, come visit us in person to obtain a REAL ID marked card. You will need to bring additional documents with you. Find out more about Real ID.
Has my new license/ID card been mailed?
Your new driver’s license or ID card will arrive in a plain white envelope within 21 days of being processed.
- Make sure to enter your first name in the first box and last name in the second box
- Enter your name exactly as it appears on your license or identification card (e.g. Matthew instead of Matt)
- Be sure to use the LAST 5 digits of your social security number (a common mistake is to use only the last 4)
