Renewing a commercial driver's license (CDL) is not unlike applying for a new one. In the state of New Mexico, you can renew a CDL up to 90 days prior to the expiration date. You must appear in person at the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD), as you will need to provide the following information:
- Current CDL
- Social Security card
- Birth Certificate
- DOT medical card
No testing is required when you renew your CDL unless:
- You need hazardous materials placards
- You are applying for additional endorsements
- Your license has been expired more than one year
If you would like to add any new endorsements to your license, this is the time to do it. For preparation, see the Commercial Driver's License Manual, available at MVD offices. Additional endorsement tests available from the New Mexico MVD include:
- Tank vehicles
- Passenger transport
- School bus
If you need to take any tests as part of your renewal, contact your local field office before you arrive at the MVD to make an appointment for endorsement testing. Otherwise, you can renew without an appointment.
The renewal fee for a CDL varies depending on the specifics of your license and how long it will be valid.
- $18 for 4 years
- $34 for 8 years
- Free for ages 75 and up, but you must renew each year
Endorsements and testing may be extra.
The New Mexico MVD accepts payment by credit card or check, made out to the Motor Vehicle Division.
