An Iowa law that soon takes effect lets people with recent experience driving large trucks in the military obtain an Iowa commercial driver's license without taking the drive skills test normally required. The law lets the Iowa Transportation Department waive the testing requirement for Iowans who are on active duty or separated honorably in the past 90 days. They must meet certain experience and safety requirements set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Applicants must be Iowa residents and hold valid Iowa driver's licenses. The new law does not waive the written test for the commercial license.
