Lost my medical card. :(

Https://www.truckingtruth.com/truckers-forum/Topic-29627/Page-Newest/should-i-keep-my-cdl- “excepted intrastate” so that you don’t need a current medical card. Of course it severely limits the circumstances where you could drive a cmv , so it’s pretty much just to keep from being downgraded. But you can get a new medical and change back to “non-excepted interstate” if you need to in the future. I suppose another issue might be if it costs more to renew a cdl , in which case you’d have to decide if it’s worth it when the time comes. But like others have said, there are cdl jobs other than driving a tractor-trailer, like delivery, trash, dump truck, cement truck, bus driver.

MAYBE THAT CAN HELP YOU?

2 New question (sorry don't know how to make a separate new comment) So here in this reply is the QUESTION.

If you have a CDL that is currently downgraded because you did not need to pay again for a medical certification, because the job now was not needing anything except a regular license, is it important to get another medical certification OR just apply for EXCEPTED intrastate? Meaning if you do NOT apply for another medical certificate and the License expires in June 2021, will you NEVER be able to upgrade again? Or like it says above, even though you have a CDL that is downgraded, can you still drive and renew it (although downgraded) and then change back to MEDICALLY certified in 6 months or whatever in the future.?

WHy? Because may not want to spend the 100 bucks to get that card right now. BUT will do it if you say, once your CDl is already downgraded, you HAVE to upgrade it with a medical certificate BEFORE it expires?

For right now only need a "EXCEPTED INTRASTATE" that doesn't need a current medical card. ...but do NOT want to lose CDL privileges. The State DMV already said they will take a photo copy of the New medical card if it is sent into them, but they were rushing and did NOT explain if you can to a "Excepted intrastate".

Help?

THANK!!!
