Driver License or Identification Card Application (DL 44)
Commercial Driver License Application (DL 44C)

The application to obtain a driver license or identification card is called “Driver License or Identification Card Application” (DL 44). The application to obtain a commercial driver license is called “Commercial Driver License Application” (DL 44C). Use these forms when you apply for, renew, replace (duplicate for a lost or stolen driver license or identification card) your driver license or identification card. You will also use a DL 44 or DL 44C to change the current class of your driver license.

The department does not provide the DL 44 or DL 44C online because original signatures are required on the form, and each DL 44 or DL 44C contains a unique barcode which must be scanned or keyed by the DMV employee.

To obtain a DL 44 or DL 44C form, call DMV’s Automated Telephone Service at 1-800-777-0133 (available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week) to have a form mailed to you or visit your local DMV office to pick one up. Back to Main forms page
