Important Information for Commercial Driver License holders:
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) recently mailed replacement CDL licenses to 64,000 Florida residents. The new license includes a restriction of “NO MANUAL TRANSMISSION (E)”. If you feel that your license was restricted in error, you must contact FLHSMV for assistance in correcting the error. They will review your testing history, make any needed corrections to the record, and then mail you a new CDL without the restriction if warranted.
Tax collector offices do not have access to skills testing results and are not authorized to make these corrections.
When contacting FLHSMV for assistance, please have your driver license number available.
FLHSMV may be reached at (850) 617-2000. Their call center is available Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. Central time.
