A Connecticut commercial driver's license (CDL) is good for 4 years. Before your renewal date you should receive a renewal application from the Department of Motor Vehicles through the U.S. Mail. You need to renew your CDL in person at any Connecticut DMV full-service office. Bring the following items with you in order to complete the renewal process:
- Your current CDL (If you do not have your current CDL, you must present acceptable forms of identification.
- Original U.S. Department of Transportation Medical Examination Report (Form 649-F) (completed and dated within 2 years of renewal).
- The renewal application form that you received in the mail.
- $70 ($118 if you have a public passenger endorsement or restriction).
If you have a hazmat endorsement, it's time to get a new background check. The procedure is not so much as a renewal as it is a whole new check; see Applying for a New CDL for full details.
