Regulations and Laws on Military Draft Registration (Selective Service) by State

Driver’s License Linked to Registration? Yes, may register when applying for a license or ID card.

Registration Linked to Access to Higher Education? No.

Registration Required for State Employment? No.

In 2003, HF 623 changed Iowa law to make optional registration with the SSS a part of applying for a driver’s license or other identification card.  Submitting the application authorizes the state to forward any relevant information to the SSS.  An individual may refuse to allow the state to submit information to SSS and still get a license, although in that case the department is instructed to report that to the SSS.  (Iowa Code 321.183).
