DES MOINES, Iowa - How does avoiding long lines at the DOT sound to you?

New kiosks installed across the state will allow Iowa residents to renew or replace their driver's licenses without having to step foot in a driver's license station.

The Iowa Department of Transportation began installing 24 kiosks across the state last month. The installation process should be completed this week.

The kiosks are equipped with a camera that can take new photos for ID cards. The DOT said new facial recognition technology will compare the new photo and a photo on file to help prevent identity theft.

Officials with the DOT said that six kiosks will be located in the Des Moines-metro, one will be located in Ames. The specific locations of the kiosks will be announced during a press conference on Monday.

The DOT said they hope to use the kiosks for additional government services in the future.
