Texas CDL COVID Update


As a result of Governor Greg Abbott's proclamation declaring a state of disaster for all counties in Texas due to COVID-19 and in cooperation with state and local governments to reduce the community spread of COVID-19 all Driver License Offices will be closed effective immediately.


The Department will immediately begin restricting services to Commercial Driver License (CDL) testing only. This service will be offered at the following CDL Sites. If you are applying for a Texas CDL or are in the process of obtaining a CDL, please contact us [required fields: Name, DL#, DOB, telephone number, email address and office location]. Once your request has been reviewed, you will be contacted to schedule an appointment. For customers who already have a CDL Skills Test scheduled, your appointment will remain the same. If you have questions, please contact us by clicking the link above.


In accordance with section 418.016 of the Texas Government Code, the Office of the Governor approved the Department's request to suspend provisions of the Texas Transportation Code to the extent necessary to delay the expiration date of Driver Licenses (DL), Commercial Driver Licenses (CDL), Personal Identification Cards (ID), and Election Certificates (EIC).


If your Texas DL, ID, CLP, CDL card or EIC expires on or after March 13, 2020, you are granted a waiver for the expiration date for 60 days after the Department provides further public notice that normal operations have resumed.
