Renewing a Commercial Driver's License (CDL) in Nevada is a relatively simple process compared to applying for a new CDL.


  1. Your CDL is up for renewal every four years. If your CDL has been lost or stolen, you will need to apply for a replacement CDL, rather than a renewal.
  2. You must renew your CDL in person, at your local full-service DMV office.
  3. Bring the following items with you to the local full-service DMV office, when renewing your commercial driver's license:
  4. Your current Nevada commercial driver's license.
  5. Residential and identity proof.
  6. Your Nevada Commercial Driver's License renewal notice.
  7. A completed Medical Examination Report indicating that you have taken a physical examination approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) within the last two years.
  8. The correct renewal fees. Fees vary depending on your age and the endorsements on your CDL. Check with your local full-service DMV office before arriving for renewal.


If your CDL includes a Hazardous Material Endorsement that you wish to retain, you must undergo a fingerprint and background check by the Transportation Security Administration. Start the process at least 30 days prior to the expiration of your CDL, to allow for sufficient processing time.

  1. You must pay a non-refundable fee of $89.25 to initiate the process. Call the Integrated Biometrics Technologies (IBT) Help Desk at 1-877-429-7746, or visit their website at
  2. Contact one of the locations listed on the IBT site to schedule a fingerprinting appointment.
  3. Bring your commercial driver's license and social security card to the IBT office on the scheduled date.
  4. An approval letter will be mailed to you from the TSA, indicating that you have successfully completed the background check. (The check may take one to eight weeks.)
  5. Go to your local full-service DMV office or Commercial Driver License Office to write the Hazmat Endorsement test. Once you successfully complete the test, the endorsement will be added to your renewed CDL.
