The renewal of CDLs is also uder the jurisdiction of the OMV. And, if you ever lose your Louisiana CDL or have it stolen, you can order a replacement through the OMV. In addition to the issuance of commercial driver's licenses, the Louisiana OMV also takes on the responsibility setting the educational requirements for those who drive commercial vehicles in Louisiana.
