I just had my license renewed and was asked if I wanted to keep my CDL rating. I did not drive out of the state of WI and never had or needed a medical certificate. In fact, I was grandfathered in 25 years ago when the state said any vehicle over 26,000# or with air brakes needed a CDL, RV's exempted. In order to keep it, I needed to show a birth certificate. I don't need it anymore so I dropped it.
