Motor carrier seminars

The Iowa DOT's Office of Motor Vehicle Enforcement provides training seminars that are required by Iowa law for carriers requesting liquid and/or passenger for hire authority. Successful completion of this course satisfies the Iowa Code requirement.

The required $200 fee will allow a carrier to register and send up to three personnel from their operation.

This one-day seminar will assist the carrier in awareness and understanding of what rules, regulations and laws they are required to comply with in relation to commercial vehicle operations.

Motor vehicle presentations

The Iowa DOT's Office of Motor Vehicle Enforcement may provide presentations on specific topics as requested. Topics such as commercial driver's license, hours of service, equipment inspection criteria, weight laws, and duties of motor vehicle enforcement officers are some of the more common requests.

Requests will be handled according to staffing levels. Staff from the Office of Motor Vehicle Enforcement will tailor requested programs to fit time constraints, schedules and dates.

Trucking companies, service clubs, associations and law enforcement agencies continue to utilize the availability of these presentations.
