Replacing a Lost CDL in Nebraska

The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will replace your lost commercial driver's license in person; it's unlikely you can apply for a duplicate CDL by mail, though you can contact the NE DMV with any questions (see below).

It's illegal to operate a commercial truck or other commercial vehicle if you don't have a valid, properly endorsed CDL with you. For your own protection, contact local and state authorities to report your lost CDL.

Out-of-State Duplicate CDL
