Replacing a Lost CDL in Utah
Typically, you must apply for a replacement commercial driver's license in person with the Department of Public Safety's (DPS) Driver License Division (DLD). The UT DLD MIGHT make exceptions if you're currently out of state, but DO NOT operate your commercial truck or any commercial vehicle until you have an official document from the DLD.
Consider reporting your lost CDL to local and state authorities to fight against identity fraud.

UT Out-of-State Commercial Drivers
As mentioned above, generally the UT DLD only accepts replacement CDL applications in person; this isn't ideal for out-of-state commercial drivers—especially those who are currently working (i.e. driving a commercial truck or other commercial vehicle).
Contact your driver license location for information on how to proceed if you're currently out of state.
