In addition to all the various other things you have to do before, during, and after a move, updating your address with the Iowa Department of Transportation is important to make certain documents like your license and registration reflect the updated information. The Iowa DOT requires that residents update their mailing address within 30 days of moving.
The DOT offers three options for their residents to change their license or ID card address information:
Via the web by visiting the online services page
In person at any location where driver's licenses are issued
By filling out this form and either mailing to
Office of Driver Services
Iowa Department of Transportation
P.O. Box 9204
