Renewing Your CDL in Nevada

How to Renew

All Nevada CDLs must be renewed in person every 8 years at the Department of Motor Vehicles. (Note: The NV DMV will transition to CDLs that are valid for 8 years by 2018). CDL holders 65 years old and older are only able to renew a CDL for 4 years. To renew any Commercial driver's license go into your local full-service DMV office and submit the following:

  • Evidence of a physical exam with a medical certificate or a Medical Examination Report (Form 649-F), if required.
  • Pay applicable fees (see "Renewal Fees," below).
  • For hazardous materials endorsements, take the hazardous materials knowledge test again and submit to another federally mandated background check (through the TSA: $86.50) if you wish to keep this endorsement on your CDL.

NOTE: If you've been convicted of multiple moving violations, you will probably be required to take the knowledge tests again, and possibly even the driving tests. Talk to an examiner at your full-service DMV office for more details.

Upgrading Your Endorsements

If you wish to add an endorsement to your CDL or upgrade your license class, you will need to fill out a new Commercial Driver's License Application (Form DMV 002E) and pass the applicable knowledge and/or skills tests.
