Renewing Your CDL in Georgia
Renewing your Georgia commercial driver's license (CDL) must be done in person at any driver's license office. You won't need to take any tests unless your license has expired or you wish to upgrade your endorsements. You may be required to have a new medical exam.
If you must take the driving portion of the CDL test for any reason (to upgrade your license class, for example), they are given only in these locations: Gainesville, Jackson, Milledgeville and Thomson. Make an appointment by calling (678) 413-8500.
You must self-certify your type of vehicle operation with the Georgia DDS. This means you must self-certify one of the following driving categories:
- Non-Excepted Interstate
- Excepted Interstate
- Non-Excepted Intrastate
- Excepted Intrastate
If you choose Non-Excepted Interstate, you must provide the DDS with a federal medical certificate.
Submit a completed self-certification application by:
- Faxing to: (770) 918-6251
- Delivering to any DDS office
- Mailing to:
- Attn: RM CDL
- P.O. Box 80447
- Conyers, GA 30013
