Obtaining Your CDL License

If you recently moved to New Mexico and you need to exchange your out-of-state CDL for a New Mexico CDL, the process is simple. All you need to do is bring the proper paperwork to your local MVD Express. However, if you are obtaining a CDL for the first time, there are a few steps you will need to take before you are officially licensed to drive a commercial vehicle.

In order to obtain your CDL, you must:

  • Pass the written test for your specific commercial driver’s license class. There is no limit to the number of times you can take the test annually in order to pass.
  • Receive a CDL learner’s permit
  • Pass a skills test

Once you’ve completed all the necessary requirements, you can bring the documents listed above to MVD Express, and we will take care of the rest!
