Transportation Commission Approves Farm Use Of School Licenses, Online CDL Renewal

Statewide Iowa — The Iowa Transportations Commission has approved some driver’s license rule changes to comply with changes passed by lawmakers in the last legislative session.

DOT Motor Vehicle Division director, Melissa Gillette, says one change involves school licenses.

Those who are 14-and-half can get a minor school license and drive to and from school and school activities by themselves between 5 am and 10 pm.

Gillette says they did have one question about home-school kids being able to use a minor school license for farm work.

The Transportation Commission also approved rules allowing drivers who have a commercial driver’s license or CDL to renew online.

She says the rules create the online CDL renewals with a few special provisions those license holders must meet to renew online.
