    I don't understand? They just started the medical card to get/renew your license on the books. How do you get 4 suspensions? Why didn't you renew?

    I'm at home now because of the medical card thing. Nobody suspended my license. Last August I had to renew and just downgraded for now. No suspensions.

    By the way, medical card requirements are for any commercial vehicle over 10,000 lbs.

    or am i screwed?
    Well, Arizona is a totally different bunch of A-Holes with the CDL. When I left Arizona and came back to Utah, I surrendered my Arizona CDL to Utah and got my Utah CDL. Everything was cool until the first renewal time. (Of course I had not been stopped by law for anything in that time period.) Went to renew my Utah CDL and found out that they couldn't renew it because I "had a suspension out of Arizona."

    After kind of coming down off the ceiling, I actually found a helpful person working at the driver's license bureau in Washington County, Utah. She took the time and trouble to contact a supervisor in the Arizona driver's license bureau and found out that it was because they had no record of my having a current DOT Physical.
    (WHY SHOULD THEY, I NO LONGER HAD AN ARIZONA CDL)
    Anyway, with her help, we got it straightened out. Then Arizona tried to claim that Utah never forwarded the surrendered license to them. Baloney.

    See my response above CC. It is "An Arizona Thing."

    I don't know the answer to this, but I suspect that any officer who pulls you over is going to run your license. Apparently before this year is up, depending on which state you are in, if you DOT is not current and filed with your licensing agency, it will show a suspended license.

    I am actually going to have to surrender my CDL this month, as I can no longer pass a DOT physical. Of course since I'm retired it doesn't matter, but I'd like to have been able to hang onto it.

    And another thing with this bs

    OK, so I go in to the driver's license office to find out about this crap. They tell me I will need a certified copy of my birth certificate. Well hell, I HAVE a copy of my birth certificate. It was sufficient to get me into 4 different law enforcement agencies as a sworn officer over the years. But it isn't good enough now to renew my driver's license.

    So, now I have to go back to a rural Colorado county to get this certified copy of my birth certificate. And what do I need to do that? $17.75 and a photo copy of my current driver's license.

    WHAT @%#^(*& $%^ #@)( IDIOT CAME UP WITH THIS HORSE CRAP?

    Beginning January 30, 2012, for each operator of a commercial motor vehicle required to have a commercial driver's license, the current licensing States must:

    • Require drivers to certify the type of operation the driver expects to conduct and post the driver's self-certification to the driver history record;
    • Retain the original or a copy of the medical certificate of any driver required to provide documentation of physical qualification for three years beyond the date the certificate was issued; and
    • Post the information from the medical examiner's certificate within 10 business days to the CDLIS driver record.
    • Within 10 calendar days of receiving information from FMCSA regarding issuance or renewal of a medical variance for a driver, the State must
      • update the CDLIS driver record to include the medical variance information provided by FMCSA.
    • Within 10 calendar days of the driver's medical certification status expiring or a medical variance expiring or being recinded, the State must:
      • Update the medical certification status of that driver as "not-certified."
      • Notify the CDL holder of his or her CDL "not-certified" medical certification status and that the CDL privilage will be removed from the driver license unless the driver submits a current medical certificate and/or medical variance, or changes his or her self-certification to driving only in excepted or intrastate commerce (if permitted by the State).
      • Initiate established State procedures for downgrading the license. The CDL downgrade must be completed and recorded within 60 days of the driver's medical certification status becoming "not-certified" to operate a CMV.

    OK, I asked the DMV in Az. the last time I re-newed my CDL, what if I don't re-new my Medical card, and she said, your CDL will be downgraded to a class "c" and will be upgraded back to a Class "a" when you re-new your medical card, anytime up to one year. If I go past one year, I will have to start all over and take ALL written and road tests again. Moral of the story, just keep your physical current. BTW, Ca. is the exact same rule.

    They used to. However, the link I posted shows the way they are to be going as of January 30, 2012.

    Many people in Illinois could get a cdl and if they quit driving, they could still renew it and no medical card was needed unless they were in cdl required vehicle. One guy I know, has a cdl since 90's. He will now not be able to renew it without the medical card.

    You can't afford $100 every 2 year for a M/C WOW. if you save 50 cents a day for 2 years you will have more then enough.
