Before applying for a hazardous materials endorsement, you should review the Entry-Level Driver Training requirements (ELDT). Once you have completed the ELDT prerequisites, you must successfully complete the written test for the Hazardous Materials Endorsement. Once successfully completed, you have 60 days to complete fingerprinting and background check in the same office of successful written exam completion.

NOTE: Once the Hazmat exam is over 60 days old, you must retake the written exam.

Commercial Driver License with a hazmat endorsement is only valid for four years. In order to renew or maintain your hazardous materials endorsement, you must retake written exam and complete background check and fingerprinting. Processing of fingerprints and background check can take up to 60 days. You may track the progress of your application by visiting

NOTE: Hazmat fingerprinting and background check can only be completed at the Marcus Pointe Office.
