Vehicle Registration Holds & Lifts

Outstanding criminal and driving-related fines place a hold on your ability to register a motor vehicle in Iowa.  This hold remains in place until all fines are paid in full.

If you have a current payment plan with the County Attorney a temporary ten (10) day lift of the hold can be granted to allow you to register your vehicle.

If you do not have a current payment plan the hold can be lifted after a payment plan is created and you pay 10% of the total owed.

If you are delinquent on a payment plan you must become current with the terms of that plan and make an additional payment before entering a new plan and receiving a lift on the vehicle registration hold.
