Replacing a Lost CDL in Maine
You can apply for a replacement commercial driver's license with the Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) in person or by mail.
The ME BMV doesn't require you to report your lost CDL to law enforcement, but it's a good idea for identity theft protection. DO NOT operate a commercial truck or any other commercial vehicle until your replacement CDL is in your hands.

- A completed Request for Duplicate Motor Vehicle Operator's License or Identification Card (Form MV-10).
- Provide acceptable proofs of:
- Any additional CDL-related documents (i.e., medical certificate or proof of endorsement).
- Payment for the $5 fee.
