While it is necessary for the Department to send notice of all expiring licenses, you may disregard such notice if you have obtained a military extension.

What type of licenses and ID cards does the DHS currently accept to access its buildings and facilities and at TSA checkpoints?
What type of state-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards does the Department of Homeland Security currently accept as identification to access its buildings and facilities and at TSA airport security checkpoints?
Until full enforcement of REAL ID begins on May 3, 2023, DHS and its component agencies, including TSA at its airport security checkpoints, will continue to accept for identification purposes all Vermont Driver’s Licenses and ID cards, as Vermont has been recognized as a Real ID compliant.
No. The current license will be voided and handed back. You should carry the old license with your temporary until the new license arrives.
If your Commercial Driver's License or Permit has been lost, stolen, or destroyed you may apply for a replacement.
How to Obtain a Replacement CDL
Commercial Driver's License holders must apply in person at a Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles Customer Service Office. You must complete the CDL Application (form #VL-031) and submit it together with the appropriate fee and identity documentation.
