Replacing a Lost CDL in South Dakota

Two Ways to Replace

There are two ways to replace a lost commercial driver's license (CDL): in person and by mail.

In Person

This is the simplest method.

Head to any exam station and bring along either two primary identification documents, or one primary and one secondary document.

However, be aware that examiners reserve the right to question documents and ask for additional proof of identity before they issue an identification card.

The cost to replace your license is $10.

Keep in mind that even though you now have a "new" license, it will still expire on the date of the "old" license.

By Mail

If you wish to apply for a duplicate license through the mail, then complete the following steps:

Then, take all of this, along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope, and mail it to:

  • Driver Licensing Program
  • 118 West Capitol Ave.
  • Pierre, SD 57501

If you are sending a check for the $10 fee, make it payable to the Department of Public Safety.
