School Driver Permit

The procedures for DMPS students wishing to obtain a school driver permit are as follows:

  1. The student must have successfully completed driver education.
  2. The form “Affidavit for School License” and a completed driver education certificate are needed.
  3. Bring both forms to the Student and Family Services Department, 2323 Grand Avenue, Des Moines.
  4. Student & Family Services will complete the school district portion of the form. The completed form needs to be taken to an Iowa Driver License Station and their rules and regulations must be followed. Do not take this form to your school as they cannot fill it out for you.

Affidavit for School License
The Affidavit for School License can be obtained either from the Iowa Department of Transportation or from the Des Moines Public Schools Department of Student and Family Services, located at 2323 Grand Avenue.
