Start Your CaReg Expedited Registration Renewal

The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) will issue your duplicate commercial driver's license in person; if you're out-of-state, you must contact the BMV for instructions. Depending on when you lose your CDL, you might be eligible to renew it instead of replace it.

Whether you apply for a CDL renewal or a replacement CDL, do not operate a commercial vehicle until the license is in your hands. Also, strongly consider reporting your stolen or lost CDL to local and state law enforcement agencies to fight identity theft.
