    The Basics

    If your commercial driver's license (CDL) has been lost or stolen, you must appear in person at your local driver's license office to apply for a replacement from the Georgia Department of Driver Services. Though you may do so with a regular license, you may not replace a lost commercial license online―you must appear in person.

    Before you go to replace your lost license, be sure to file a police report and take a copy of that with you. You may need to fill out a Lost License Affidavit at the driver's license office.

    The fee is $5.

    Documents Needed

    Other documentation you may need is listed below. You'll need only one item from the Group 1 list, or two documents from Group 2.

    Group 1:

    • Certified birth certificate
    • Valid passport
    • Immigration ID card
    • Certified copy of court records (name change, adoption, sex change)

    Group 2:

    • Original Social Security card
    • Certified copy of marriage license
    • Current auto insurance policy
    • Voter registration card

    Number Change

    The Department of Driver Services will only change your driver's license number under the following circumstances:

    • Your license number is the same as your Social Security number.
    • Your license has been stolen (you must furnish a police report as proof).
    • The change has been authorized in writing by the License Fraud Unit (usually in identity theft cases).
