The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) handles replacement commercial driver's licenses. You MUST apply for a duplicate commercial driver's license in person at a NV DMV office that handles CDL transactions.

You must have a valid, properly endorsed CDL to operate any commercial vehicle; do not drive a commercial truck until you have your replacement CDL. Consider reporting your lost CDL to local and state authorities for identity protection purposes.
