Get Free Commercial Auto Insurance Quotes from Multiple Providers
Enter Your Zip Code:When your CDL is lost or stolen, the police need to know about it right away. After the police, you'll need to get in touch with the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Driving without a valid driver's license is against the law. Driving commercial motor vehicles without your CDL is against Delaware and federal FMCSA law.
The DMV will issue you a duplicate CDL if yours is lost, stolen, or damaged beyond recognition. A duplicate CDL is easy to get providing you complete the application, pay the fee, and bring all the proper documents to the DMV office.
You can't complete the application for a duplicate CDL online. The quickest and surest way to get a duplicate is to visit the DMV as soon as possible.
- Complete the application form, including an explanation of what happened to your CDL.
- Pay the $10 fee.
If you entire wallet or purse was stolen, including your other identification documents, then you might have to get replacements for those too. Hopefully, you still have some of the primary and secondary documents listed on the Required Documents Table:
- Employer ID Card
- IRS or State Tax Forms
- Gun Permit
- Military ID
- Social Security Card
At least one of the three documents you bring must include your signature.
Once you have applied for your duplicate CDL, take the time to be sure you've replaced all the documents you lost. An additional concern, very common today, is worry about identity theft and privacy. Be careful when reviewing your credit card bills and bank statements to be sure you are not at risk.
