What documents needed to get my DL , ID Card or REAL ID?

Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

AMES-Stumped? You're not alone. There are a lot of people applying for their first Iowa driver's license, an identification card, a duplicate card to replace a lost or stolen one or one of the new REAL ID-approved versions. And to get one you need to bring acceptable proof of your age, identity, current full legal name, Iowa residency, legal presence in the United States, and Social Security number.

The Iowa Department of Transportation's new online application - Prepare for Success - helps you create a personalized list of the documents you need to bring when applying. It's free, easy to use and the list can be printed for use while gathering your documents. Check it out at:

Mark Lowe, director of the Iowa DOT's Motor Vehicle Division, said: "This application is all about making it easy for our customers. It saves time, hassles and repeat visits to the driver's license station. And best of all, it is personalized so you can choose from the list of acceptable documents that you have available."
