Endorsements Hazmant

What are endorsements?

Depending on what you’re transporting, you may need one or more of the following six endorsements. An endorsement allows you to operate certain types of commercial motor vehicles and transport specific items. Additional testing is required to obtain an endorsement, and in some cases, if you already have a CDL, you will be required to hold a commercial learner’s permit for that endorsement for at least 14 days before it can be added to your CDL. Additional training is required after February 7, 2022 (see the ELDT section below).

Hazardous materials (H) : This endorsement allows you to transport hazardous materials, such as flammable or combustible liquids, gases, or explosives. You will be required to complete a comprehensive state and federal background check.

The DPS HME application process includes 4 steps:

1.Complete and submit your application and any required fees to the Driver License Office

2.Pass the hazardous materials endorsement knowledge test. Note: Beginning February 7, 2022, first-time EHR applicants must complete the ELDT before taking the EHR knowledge exam.

3.Schedule and Complete Your Fingerprint Appointment

4.Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Security Threat Assessment


The total time to complete the process depends on how quickly the CDL driver completes Steps 1, 2, and 3. Once they are completed, TSA’s goal for Step 4 is to provide a response within 30 to 45 days after receiving the information and fingerprints provided. If a person has not received any correspondence from DPS after 45 days from the date of their fingerprinting, they should submit a email to DPS or contact him Customer Service Center to inquire about the status of your EHR application.
