Nonresident Commercial Driver License (CDL)
DPS may issue a:
Temporary, 60-day nonrenewable, nonresident CDL to an individual who does not have a Social Security Number, or
Nonresident CDL to an individual who presents a valid Social Security Number.
NOTE: A nonresident is not eligible for a hazardous material endorsement.
Residents of Mexico and Canada
Individuals who hold a valid CDL from Mexico or Canada have reciprocity with the U.S.
and may use that license to operate a commercial motor vehicle in Texas. Since Mexico
and Canada are countries whose licensing standards meet the US testing and licensing
standards, they do not qualify for a nonresident or non-domicile CDL.
Issuance of Nonresident CDL
Individuals with a valid Social Security Number may be eligible for a nonresident CDL.
