Like many government agencies, the Iowa Department of Transportation's Motor Vehicle Division requires forms for most of its services. For example:
- If you would like to apply for a special parking permit for drivers with disabilities, you must complete an Application for Persons with Disabilities Parking Permit (Form 411055).
- If you are involved in a serious auto accident, you may be required to fill out an Iowa Accident Report Form (Form 433002).
- If you are a minor who wishes to obtain a school license, you must complete an Affidavit for School License Form (Form 430021).
Unfortunately, driver's license applications are not available online. However, you may find other forms related to driver services in the Iowa DOT's Driver Services forms directory.
- Application for Certificate of Title and/or Registration (Form 411007).
- Application for Certificate of Title/Registration for a Leased Vehicle (Form 411179).

The Iowa DOT makes available additional forms relating to vehicles, registration, and license plates in the Vehicle Services forms directory.
