Out-of-State CDL Transfer
You are required to pass a vision exam having 20/40 in each eye. A Department of Transportation (DOT) medical exam certification is required. The medical certification must be carried while operating a commercial motor vehicle, and is valid for two years.
The issuance of a CDL license is prohibited to anyone who is not a Florida resident, does not provide a Florida residential address or proof of their social security number.
The Patriot Act requires a federal security check and the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) requires a fingerprint-based background check for drivers applying for a Hazmat endorsement.
If you are transferring a commercial driver license with a Hazmat endorsement, you will have to visit one of our Hazmat capable offices.
