The myIowaDOT app has been developed to act as a container for other Iowa Department of Transportation apps. It shows all available Iowa Department of Transportation apps, even those apps that are not currently installed on the device. If an app is selected that is not installed on the device, the user is taken to that app in the App Store so the app can be installed. Once apps have been installed, the myIowaDOT app can be used as a launch pad for those apps.
The list of apps available on the myIowaDOT app is built dynamically, so new apps will automatically appear in the myIowaDOT app as they are developed. Users can also create a list of favorite apps, personalized to meet their needs.
Apps that are currently available with myIowaDOT include:
Aviation - Contains an Iowa airport directory, aviation weather, an aviation calendar, and NOTAMs (Notice to Airmen)
Bike Map - An interactive bike map with bike trail navigation and driving directions
DL Docs – Helps determine which documents are needed in order to obtain an Iowa Real ID
Drive Test – A practice test to help prepare for the Iowa driver's test
ERL – The Department’s Electronic Reference Library, which contains highway & bridge construction specifications and standards
Facebook – The Iowa Department of Transportation’s Facebook page
Iowa 511 – Traveler information such as winter road conditions, traffic speeds, and traffic cameras
Legis – Information about the Iowa Department of Transportation by Iowa legislative district
myMVD – Use this to renew your Iowa driver’s license, change your address, or see your driving record

What's New in Version 1.1.11
The Iowa DOT's Electronic Reference Library (ERL) was added to the list of available applications.
Beats standing in line at the DMV!
It's not a pretty app by any means, but it worked fine for me (DL Renewal on a 6+). You do have to wait a few seconds after pressing continue or next before it advances to the next screen. The app doesn't give clear feedback that it's still processing, so I could see people thinking the app froze. I figure the few seconds delay between pages is still better than a 30+ minute wait at the DMV.
Not worth the frustration
Tried it 5 or 6 times over several days. Got to payment point several times & submit button was grayed-out. Noted sometimes it offered to renew license for 5 yrs, other times 6 & once for 7. Finally went on-line & it worked the first try & renewed for 7 yrs. a very frustrating experience. Wish there was a zero stars choice for review of this app!
I confirm - Does not work for license renewal
Went all the way through, but when it came time to enter payment, the screen failed to come up. Now it tells me I am not eligible because the last time I renewed was online.
Like others, I hope we taxpayers didn't pay the moron who messed this thing up. Leave it to the government to show unbelievable levels of incompetence.
