Any time a trip to the DMV can be avoided we’ll take it! You can renew your driver’s license online in Iowa as long as you meet the state’s eligibility requirements. Let’s take a look at what those requirements include.
You can renew online if you:
  • Are between the ages of 18 and 70.
  • Are a resident of Iowa and a US citizen.
  • Have a valid driver’s license that is in good standing.
  • Have a license that’s expiring within the next 180 days and hasn’t been expired for more than one year.
  • Renewed your driver’s license in person during the previous renewal period.
  • Do not have any changes to report—such as name, gender, or restrictions.
  • Do not have restrictions on your license.
  • Require a REAL ID or veteran status added to your license.
Once you renew your license online you should expect to receive it by mail within 21 days.
