How to Replace a Commercial Driver's License (CDL) in Pennsylvania

If your Pennsylvania commercial driver's license (CDL) is lost, stolen, or destroyed, you can apply for a replacement license. While not required by Pennsylvania law, it is a good idea to notify your local police department if you believe your CDL has been stolen.

APPLYING FOR A DUPLICATE CDL IN PERSON

  1. You will need to visit your local Driver License Centre or Online Messenger Service in person in order to apply for a replacement CDL.
  2. You must bring a completed Application for a Replacement Form (DL-80CD) and valid forms of identification.
  3. Submit the replacement fee of $10.
  4. If your current CDL is damaged, you must surrender it at the Driver License Centre or Online Messenger Service when you apply for a replacement.
  5. If you apply with an Online Messenger Service, they can issue a temporary license with a validity of 15 days while PennDOT processes the duplicate CDL.

APPLYING FOR A DUPLICATE CDL BY MAIL

  1. Complete the Application for a Replacement Form (DL-80CD) and get it notarized.
  2. Include the replacement fee of $10 and mail the package to:
    PennDOT
    Bureau of Driver Licensing
    P.O. Box 68272
    Harrisburg, PA 17106-8272    
  3. If your updated information is available with PennDOT, you will be sent the duplicate CDL. If your information is not updated, PennDOT will send you a temporary card which you need to take to your local Photo License Center within 60 days to get an updated photo.
