If you meet the definition of Veteran from Iowa Code Chapter 35.1 or Retired Military, bring in your Retired Military ID and Driver’s License or the DD214 Military Discharge. We have forms available at our office. We can assist you with filling out the form and we will certify it. Take the certified form to the DOT station and present it along with your Driver’s License. This form can be done before you renew your license; however, if it is not set to expire the DOT may have a charge.
