Call (319) 334-7456 to schedule drives which are usually booked out one to two weeks.  Drives are not offered on a same day basis.  If you are calling for your son or daughter we will need to know their name, driver's license number, and why they need to have a drive.  Due to the Driver Protection Act (18US§2721), anyone 18 years and older seeking driver's license information or wishing to schedule an appointment will need to contact us themselves. 

We encourage you to come into the office at your earliest convenience.  It is busiest at the end of the day.  Unfortunately different driver's license scenarios are more time consuming than others, and we do quit taking driver's license customers if we are backed up at the end of the day so that we can have customers that have been checked in issued to by 4:00 p.m.
