Replacing a Lost CDL in Washington

Getting a Duplicate CDL

If you lose your Washington commercial driver's license (CDL), you will have to go to your local Department of Licensing office to get a replacement. It will cost you $20 and you will need to provide proof of identity. You may not apply through the mail for a replacement CDL.

NOTE: The following office locations DO NOT accept credit or debit cards: Coulee Dam, Davenport, Friday Harbor, Forks, Goldendale, Newport, Republic, or South Bend.

Verifying Identity

If you need help establishing your identity, then the Licensing Services Office representative can verify the information contained in your
driving record. The representative will need your name, date of birth, ZIP code, and the last five digits of your Social Security number in order to do this.

You will be issued a temporary nonphoto CDL, and a new one will be sent to you through the mail once your information is verified. For more information, please contact the Department of Licensing at (360) 902-3900.

Reporting a Stolen CDL

Stealing a CDL is a crime, and should be reported to the police as well as credit reporting agencies. Reporting your CDL will protect your identity from being stolen too. The Federal Trade Commission(FTC) has more info.
