    Re-test to get your cdl back. That's what you have to do in Tx anyway.

    Retest. AFTER you get a valid DOT Medical.

    This happened to me a couple years ago, had to get the medical card first then just go to the DMV and have my CDL reinstated – did not have to retest.
    That is in Arizona.

    Washington simply requires you submit a new medical to get your Class A status reinstated, each jurisdiction is different. Call your state, or go on their webpage for accurate info...

    Lot of states have no grace period anymore & downgrade immediately.

    In North Carolina you just send in your new med cert. But here you are not just downgraded, they suspend your class C also. So if med card expires you can’t even drive a car.

    We have to pay a reinstatement fee.

    Don't know if there's a grace period and possible retest.

    I had to submit fingerprints. And $40. It was day 30 on suspension.

    In CO you just have to file an updated medical card within one year from it expiring and you do not have to retest.
