Iowa Online Driver Education and Iowa Licensing Procedures

So you've taken your first step towards becoming a new driver in Iowa?  Congratulations! 

As you probably already know, driving is a valuable skill, but can also be extremely dangerous.  Therefore, to help new teen drivers develop safe driving habits during their first few years behind the wheel, the State of Iowa has implemented a graduated driver license program for Iowa drivers who are under the age of 18.

We’ve summarized a few things you’ll need to know as you go begin your process of becoming a licensed driver in Iowa.

Iowa Instruction Permit (aka--Learners Permit)

You need to be 14 years old to be eligible for an instruction permit in Iowa.  When you're ready to take your written driver's test, be sure to take the following items with you to your local driver's license office:

  • Valid identification documents (for a complete listing of acceptable documents, please visit the Iowa DMV website)
  • Social Security card
  • A completed & signed parental consent form (may be downloaded from the Iowa DMV website)

At the driver’s license office, you will be given both a vision test and a written (knowledge) test.  If you pass both of these, you will be issued an Iowa instruction permit which is valid for two (2) years.

Instruction Permit Restrictions:

You may never drive alone with an instruction permit.  Whenever you drive, you must be accompanied by a licensed driver to supervise you.  This person may be any one of the following:

  • A certified driving instructor
  • A family member who has a driver's license and is at least 21 years old
  • A licensed driver who is at least 25 years old (with the written permission of your parents/guardians).

After you turn 16 and have had your instruction permit for six (6) months, you will be ready to apply for your Iowa intermediate license.

Iowa Intermediate License

To be eligible for an intermediate license, you must meet the following prerequisites:

  • Be at least 16 years old
  • Had an Iowa instruction permit for at least six (6) months
  • Complete 20 hours of supervising driving (this must include at least 2 hours at night)
  • No citations & No accidents for at least six (6) straight months
  • 30 hours of classroom instruction (including 4 hours of substance abuse education)
  • Six (6) hours of laboratory, including at least 3 hours of behind-the-wheel driving training

When you go down to the driver's license office, you will need to bring your instruction permit along with the same required documents you took when you went to get your instructional permit.

You will need to pass a road test to get your intermediate license. 

Intermediate License Rules/Restrictions:

During the first 12 months after receiving your intermediate license...

  • You may not drive between 12:30am and 5am without supervision (exception being if you're driving to or from work or a school-sponsored activity)
  • You must complete 10 hours of supervised driving during the first year, 2 of which must be done at night.
  • Everyone in the car must be buckled up
  • You cannot receive any citations or be involved in any at-fault accidents

If you do all of the above during the first year of having your intermediate license, you will be eligible for upgrading to a full license when the 12-month period is up.

Iowa Auto Insurance Liability Coverage Laws

You must have auto insurance liability coverage for any vehicle you drive in Iowa.  Violation of this law can result in your license being suspended plus a hefty fine.  For information on the minimum coverage you are required to have, please contact the Iowa DMV.

Iowa Drunk Driving Laws

Driving while under the influence of alcohol is a serious offense which carries severe consequences:  Upon your first conviction of a Iowa DUI (0.08), you will face the following penalties:

  • Jail sentence from a minimum 48 hours to 1 year
  • $625-1,250 fine
  • Iowa license suspension of 180 days

And of course, further Iowa DUI convictions will result in increased jail time, community service, fines, and Iowa license suspension or even Iowa license revocation.

Iowa Cell Phones & Text-Messaging Laws

Currently, Iowa has no laws restricting the use of cell-phones or text-messaging devices while driving.

What paperwork will they ask me for when I go to take the Iowa learners permit test?

Different states require different documents from learner's permit applicants, although you most likely will be asked to show your completion certificate from a Iowa driver education online or classroom course.  Many states require applicants to present additional paperwork including, but not limited to, a birth certificate, parental consent forms, or proof school enrollment forms.  To find out exactly what documents you should have with you when you go to take your Iowa learner's permit test, CyberEdDriverEd.com recommends that you visit the Iowa DMV website or call one of their local offices in your area.


Generally, you’re allowed to take the Iowa learners permit test as soon as you have the following documents: the Iowa driver education certificate of completion and the Iowa driver training certificate of enrollment. Once you have these documents, you’re eligible to begin learning to drive and can go to the Iowa licensing office in your area to take the Iowa learners permit test. Again, this is a general rule and may not apply in Iowa.

Will I be able to review each section of the CyberEdDriverEd.com Iowa internet drivers ed course while I am taking the Iowa online drivers ed course quiz?
You will not have access to any of the CyberEdDriverEd.com Iowa online drivers ed course materials during each Iowa online drivers ed course quiz, but if you fail the Iowa online drivers ed course quiz you will be allowed to go back and review the previous Iowa online drivers ed course chapter.
Couldn’t I just take the Iowa driver education course in a classroom? What makes your online Iowa driver education course unique?
You could take the Iowa driver education course in a classroom, but what makes the CyberEdDriverEd.com Iowa online learners permit course special is the amount of freedom you have. Rather than sit in a classroom passively listening to a teacher, you’ll instead be learning what you want, where you want, how you want! Even in states that do not allow online driver education, the Iowa driver ed course offered by CyberEdDriverEd.com can still be a useful tool that will reinforce the things you learn in the classroom.
What forms of ID verification are used by CyberEdDriverEd.com for its Iowa online drivers ed course?
If we need you to verify your ID, it will take the form of personal questions we ask you during the registration process and at different points during the Iowa online learners permit course. Because the majority of states do not require ID verification, we’ll let you know if yours does.
