Commercial Drivers License Info New Mexico




A non-commercial (regular, Class D) New Mexico driver license or a valid out-of-state commercial driver license (CDL) is required to get a New Mexico commercial driver license.

Written tests are not required to exchange a valid out-of-state CDL for a New Mexico CDL with the same class and endorsements. Any driver needing a hazardous materials (Hazmat) endorsement must take a written test, be fingerprinted and get a background check.

If you do not have a valid out-of-state CDL, you must go to the MVD and complete the following: pass the written test, receive a CDL learner’s permit, pass a skills test.
