How do I renew a GA CDL? Georgia
Renewing a CDL in GeorgiaEach Georgia (GA) commercial drivers license (CDL) must be renewed with 30 days of expiration if you transport hazardous materials. Because it takes the federal Transportation Security Administration (TSA) 120 days to process hazardous materials CDL renewal applications, renew your commercial license as soon as possible.
GA CDLs are good for five years. Within 60-90 days of the expiration date on your CDL class license, the GA Department of Driver Services (DDS) will send you a license renewal form.
To renew your GA CDL:
- Review personal information listed on your license (i.e. name, address).
- Renew personal information as needed.
- Pay the $20 license renewal fee in person at a local DDS office or by mail using a credit card, check, or money order.
- Pass a vision screening (minimum vision required is 20/40 in each eye).
- Take and pass a road test as required (if you need to take a road test, the mandate will be listed on your CDL renewal form).
