If you have lost your commercial driver's license (CDL) or it has been stolen, the state of New Mexico requires that you replace it in person at a Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) office.
Stolen License and New CDL Number
To get a new CDL with a new number on it, you must file a police report.
- Take a copy of this or the police officer's business card with the case number written on it with you to the MVD.
- At the MVD, you must also sign a statement stating that you want to get a new CDL with a new number.
For a replacement CDL with an unchanged number, visit an MVD office.
- Bring another form of ID.
- Fill out a replacement request form.
The MVD already has the specifications of your CDL on file, including endorsements. Once you provide the proper ID, fill out a replacement form, and pay the replacement fee, a temporary license will be issued.
Expect your new CDL in the mail in four to six weeks.
- $18 for a 4-year license.
- $34 for an 8-year license.
- Free for drivers 75 and up.
You have the option of paying this with cash, credit card, or check. Please make checks out to the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division. For office hours or further details regarding a replacement CDL, contact your local MVD field office.
