CDL HAZMAT Endorsement

The USA PATRIOT Act prohibits states from issuing a CDL license to operate a commercial motor vehicle transporting hazardous materials unless the Secretary of Transportation has determined the individual does not pose a security risk. The term hazardous materials refers to hazardous substances, hazardous wastes, marine pollutants and elevated temperature material.

Drivers seeking to obtain, renew or transfer a hazardous materials endorsement on a state-issued CDL must pass the TSA Hazardous Material Endorsement Threat Assessment Program. The risk assessment includes checks of criminal history records, legal status, and relevant international databases.
