Do I have to surrender my CA driver's license when applying for a new one in Maryland?

Simply, will the Maryland MVA make me surrender my CA license to them when they give me my new MD license? I've waiting for quite awhile to get a MD license as I wasn't sure if I was going to remain here after I graduated, now I must reregister my car so I'm sure I need a MD DL. (Oddly enough, I wasn't required to have one when I leased my car at a MD car dealership two years ago).
I've scoured the MD MVA site for an answer but all they say is they require your existing license for proof of identity and that you've passed a driver's test in your previous state, but do they physically take it from you?
Can anyone provide any anecdata here?
