Apply for your replacement commercial driver's license with the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division (MVD); generally, you must apply in person, but the MVD MIGHT make an exception for out-of-state commercial drivers.

The NM MVD recommends filing a police report for a lost CDL, and you MUST file a police report if you want a new license number assigned. DO NOT operate a commercial vehicle or truck until you get your replacement CDL.

Order a Duplicate CDL in NM

Apply for your replacement CDL in person at your local NM MVD office.

Be prepared to:

  • Complete any required application(s) for duplicates.
  • Provide a police report IF you want a new license number assigned.
    • You also must provide a written request for a new license number.
  • Provide all required proofs of identity and residency related to the Real ID and/or driver's authorization card.
    • The NM MVD now issues each duplicate as a Real ID or driving authorization card, so you must provide the same proofs as you would for a first-time license. Visit our guide to Applying for a New License for steps and details.
  • Pay the applicable fee based on your license's validity period OR your age:
    • 4 years: $18.
    • 8 years: $34.
    • Drivers at least 79 years old: free.

Out-of-State NM Replacement CDL

As mentioned above, generally the NM MVD only issues duplicate CDLs in person; however, if your circumstances are dire, you MIGHT be eligible for a replacement while out of state. Contact your local MVD office for details.
