Effective July 1, Georgia Commercial Driver’s License will be changing as follows:

 

  • For renewal of an 8-year term CDL, the fee will increase from $20 currently to $32, which equates to $4 per year, and is consistent with the current fee charged for renewal of an 8-year term non-commercial driver’s license.

 

  • For initial issuance of an 8-year term CDL that does not require a road test, the fee will increase from $20 to $32, which equates to $4 per year, and is consistent with the current fee charged for an 8-year term non-commercial driver’s license.

 

  • For initial issuance of an 8-year term CDL that does require a road test, the fee will increase to $82.  This increase is to incorporate the additional $12 associated with the increased cost of the 8-year term CDL from $20.00 to $32.00.  The testing fee of $50.00 per test remains the same.

CDLs that are restricted to terms of 5 years or less will remain $20.  This includes CDLs with hazardous materials endorsements that require a U.S. Transportation Security Administration threat assessment, as well as Limited Term CDL’s that are issued to non-citizens with lawful status whose CDL term cannot exceed their authorized period of stay in the United States, or 5 years, pursuant to the REAL ID Act.

These changes are the result of House Bill 136, which was passed by the Georgia General Assembly on March 30, 2017 and signed into law by Governor Nathan Deal on May 1, 2017.
