Start Your CaReg Expedited Registration Renewal

The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) determines how you should apply for your duplicate commercial driver's license via an interactive questionnaire. Once you complete the questionnaire, the RMV will instruct you on whether you can apply online or must apply in person.

Remember, it's illegal to operate a commercial truck or any commercial vehicle without the required CDL on hand. Also, for your identity protection, it's a good idea to report your lost CDL to the appropriate local and state agencies.

Apply for a Duplicate MA CDL

The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) determines your application process (i.e. online or in person) once you complete the state's interactive questionnaire.

Online

As you complete the questionnaire, the MA RMV will determine whether you can continue to apply for your duplicate CDL online.

If so, the system will ask additional questions related to the online application process and you'll complete the application by paying the applicable fee. Generally, the RMV charges a $25 fee for replacement licenses, but you might pay more depending on your CDL type and endorsements.

In Person

If you're not eligible to apply online and must apply in person, the system will ask another set of additional questions.

Once you've answered those questions, you can:

  • Download, print, and sign your application.
  • Gather the required documents stated on your application form.
  • Visit your local RMV office with your paperwork and the applicable fee.

An RMV agent will then help you receive your new Massachusetts CDL.

Outstanding MA CDL Obligations

You can't receive a replacement CDL if you have outstanding obligations. These could be tickets, warrants, child support payments, or similar issues.

The questionnaire will inform you if you have any outstanding obligations and:

  • Provide you a list of those obligations.
  • Instruct you on how to resolve them.

Once they're handled, you can head to your local RMV office.
