GLEN BURNIE, MD (May 26, 2020) – The Maryland Department of
Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration (MDOT MVA) is announcing new online
and self-serve options for Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holders to obtain
products quickly and safely – a move that will help those delivering vital
supplies during Maryland’s COVID-19 State of Emergency and beyond. Current CDL
holders with a valid Medical Certificate and REAL ID documents on
file can now order a renewal, correction or duplicate copy of their license
on the MDOT MVA eStore or at a 24-hour self-service
“We are so thankful for the first
responders, truck drivers, delivery workers and other essential commercial
drivers who have worked through this crisis to provide critical services for
all,” said MDOT MVA Administrator Chrissy Nizer. “This change is another way to
make it as easy as possible for our customers to complete transactions as
safely and conveniently as possible, especially our commercial drivers
performing vital work.”
MDOT MVA offices have been closed
since March 20 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and all customers have
been encouraged to take advantage of online services from the safety of home to
complete many types of MDOT MVA transactions. These aspects of the CDL process
are now among those services that can be completed remotely.
Even before this expansion of
online options, MDOT MVA has continued to help CDL holders provide emergency
services and keep essential commerce moving during the COVID-19 shutdown by
setting up a dedicated email address and phone

cannot be ordered online; affected customers should contact MDOT MVA to make an
appointment for assistance.
