Do I need to reinstall AMD GPU Drivers when swapping out cards?

Tomorrow I'm going to start testing about 6 different graphics cards on the same rig - ranging from a HD5870 to a HD7970- and I was wondering if there was any need to reinstall the drivers each time I swap one out? Will I run into any issues if I leave the drivers, as I believe they're the same for each card, or will it be fine?

I'm just curious as from a time-saving perspective, as for my job this is something I'll be required to do quite often.

Each generation card comes with it's own driver package. For testing each HD5xxx series card, you don't need to install new drivers. The same goes for testing of each HD6xxx or HD7xxx series card.
