What is the fee for a New Mexico commercial driver's license?

The fee is $18.00 for a four- year license or $34.00 for an eight- year license. Drivers who are 75 years old or older must renew their licenses yearly, but they are not charged renewal fees.

New Mexico State law now requires a DWI records check on all drivers moving to New Mexico from out- of- state. To pay for the records check, those drivers are charged an additional one- time $15.00 fee, increasing their total to $33.00 for a four- year license or $49.00 for an eight- year license.

Driver�s with the hazardous materials (Hazmat) endorsement cannot get an eight- year license.

The additional cost for the background check and fingerprinting required to obtain a Hazmat endorsement is $127.00.
