Important Reminder for CDL Drivers

Commercial drivers, under the Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act (MCSIA) requirement, you must provide the names of all states where you have been licensed (either for commercial or non-commercial driving) within the past ten years. This is to be done at the time of applying for initial issuance, renewing or transferring your commercial driverís license (CDL). Federal regulations require PennDOT to obtain your driver history from each state and make it part of your Pennsylvania driver record.

PennDOT must adhere to these federal requirements. Consequently, you will not be able to renew your Pennsylvania commercial driverís license unless you complete this licensing requirement. Depending on the histories obtained from the other states, sanctions may be imposed.

To update your record via our website, you will need your driverís license number, date of birth and last four digits of your social security number. All commercial drivers must complete this information requirement in order to renew.
