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.
This is the simplest method.
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.
If you wish to apply for a duplicate license through the mail, then complete the following steps:
- Fill out a Driver's License Application
- Make copies of either two primary or one primary and one secondary document
- Write your signature on a plain piece of white paper
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.
