How to Transfer a CDL License to Texas
If you are planning a move to the state of Texas and possess a valid commercial driver license (CDL) for your home state, you will have 90 days to transfer that license after entering the state. All applicants seeking to transfer their license must appear in person at a Driver License Office in Texas to begin and complete the transfer.
Tips & Warnings
If your CDL from your home state has expired, you will be required to take both the written test and the road test, in addition to the vision test, to obtain your license in Texas.
All CDL-related transactions must be completed in person at a Texas Driver License Office. You cannot take any related actions online or by mail.
If you license has been suspended, revoked or canceled by the State of Texas or any other state, you will not qualify for a CDL license. You will first need to rectify that issue before proceeding.
