Do I have to get a new license in the state that I moved to?

CDL from Tennessee now living in Florida

I have a CDL Class A from Tennessee. I have recently moved and accepted a job in Florida. The new employer says I am required by FMCSA to transfer my Tennessee CDL to a Florida CDL.

Is this correct and if so what is the FMCSA Regulation number for this.

If you moved, likely yes.

It used to be based on state law that you moved to. I wouldn't be surprised that it is required now by FMCSA to get a license in the state of which you live. Because it makes sense for enforcement and keeping track of those wishing to game the system, etc.


However, I don't know for sure. So I don't know the reg number.
