Korea signs driver's license deal with Iowa

CHICAGO (Yonhap) --
Iowa became the 12th U.S. state Tuesday to sign a driver's license reciprocity agreement with South Korea.

The agreement, effective immediately, allows South Korean citizens over 18 to exchange their valid noncommercial South Korean driver's license for an Iowa noncommercial driver's license without a knowledge or road test.

Iowa drivers will be able to exchange their Iowa driver's license for a South Korean driver's license.

The deal was signed by Huh Chul, South Korean consul general in Chicago, and Iowa Department of Transportation Director Paul Trombino III.

"This agreement serves the flow of commerce and economic prosperity between the Republic of South Korea and state of Iowa, while building continued collaboration," Trombino III said in a statement. "We value the contributions made by South Korean businesses here in Iowa and are very pleased to partner with them to assist our Iowa business leaders now living and working in that country."

Korea has similar agreements with Maryland, Virginia, Washington, Massachusetts, Texas, Floria, Oregon, Michigan, Idaho, Alabama, and West Virginia.
