IRP staggered registration transition

Beginning with the registration year 2013, The Iowa Department of Transportation’s Office of Vehicle and Motor Carrier Services will implement a staggered registration process as provided in Senate File 2216, signed by Governor Branstad on April 19, 2012. Continue to check back here for future updates.

August 10, 2012, update

The Iowa DOT’s Office of Vehicle and Motor Carrier Services (OVMCS) has completed the process of assigning a registration renewal month to all 6,870 Iowa International Registration Plan (IRP) registrants.

Assignments were made on a first-come basis and every attempt was made to accommodate the choices requested. Registrants who did not submit a choice were assigned a registration renewal month by OVMCS.

A letter announcing the renewal month assigned was mailed Aug. 1, 2012, to each Iowa IRP registrant at the physical address on file with OVMCS.

Registrants who have not received a letter from the Iowa DOT by Aug. 15 should contact OVMCS at or 515-237-3268. Please include your IRP client identification (ID) number in the email or have the client ID number ready if phoning OVMCS.
