DMVs are open for all driver license and ID card customers. Driver licenses can be
renewed online for most customers. All vehicle transactions must be done
online, by mail or
3rd party agents. Vehicle emission extensions have expired. As of August 1, you are required to pass an emission test before renewing your registration.
Upload your medical certificate (Fed Med card) - Tier 1 drivers
- Tier 1 drivers are required to submit their Fed Med card to the DMV and keep it updated. Once you have uploaded your Fed Med card you will be able to print a confirmation of successful upload. Note: The confirmation is not valid to present to law enforcement or as proof you meet the commercial medical standards. The actual medical certificate and information on your record are the true verification that you meet these standards.
- Drivers who have certified to operate at Tier 2, 3 or 4 are not required to upload their Fed Med card. However, you may still be required to have a Fed Med card due to state statutes or employer policy. You do not have to furnish a copy of the card to the DMV, unless you are a Tier 3 driver applying for a license renewal or replacement at a DMV Customer Service Center.
View your tier of operation
- If you have already certified Tier 1, 2, 3 or 4 you may view and print your information from this website.
- If you would like to change your tier, you will need to visit a
DMV Customer Service Center. The following are required:

MV3001. We recommend that you complete all forms online, print and take them with you to the DMV Customer Service Center.
- A completed Commercial Driver Certification: Tier of Operation

Duplicate fee (a duplicate driver license is required to accurately reflect any changes in driving restrictions based on your tier selection)
- If you are a new commercial driver, you will certify a tier as part of the application process for your CDL. The Tier of Operation form
MV3230 defines each of the tier levels. When you visit a DMV Customer Service Center to apply for your CDL, you will be asked to make your selection.
