The advantage here would be to be able to take driver improvement school instead of points for traffic citations and the cost of keeping your CDL complainant. I can't speak for other states but here they will give it back to you when you re qualify for it without having to test again.
I have never even herd of a class E, here if you give up your CDL you have to re test both the paper exam and the driving portion. I am not understanding the last part of your reply. I guess you are talking about tickets and insurance costing more with a CDL.
