You won’t have to renew your Iowa driver’s license until after the COVID-19 outbreak passes, if it expired on Jan. 17 or later, the Iowa Department of Transportation reported. The same goes for vehicle registrations, titles and license plates.

Driver’s license renewals are by appointment only until further notice.

Trucks hauling food, medical supplies, cleaning products or other household goods may exceed weight limits by up to 12.5% until further notice.

Commercial drive tests have been postponed.

The rule changes were part of the public health emergency proclamation signed Tuesday by Gov. Kim Reynolds.
