Truck drivers with their CDLs are in-demand in the trucking industry, and being able to transport hazardous materials is a specialized driver credential that can result in more opportunities and higher driver pay. This course was created in collaboration with an approved training provider listed on Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)'s Training Provider Registry (TPR).

This CDL hazmat test course is designed for commercial motor vehicle drivers seeking a hazardous materials (H) endorsement to their Commercial Driver's License (CDL). The hazmat endorsement is required to become a hazmat driver so that you can haul certain types of specialized freight and open new career opportunities as a driver. If you seek an endorsement such as this, you must complete this curriculum to take the state-administered knowledge test for the H endorsement.

The hazmat theory course must be completed to take the state Hazmat Endorsement Knowledge Exam, which is usually administered at the state motor vehicle office. Upon completion of this hazmat endorsement training course, our system will automatically upload your ELDT records to the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) TPR, and you can take your state's hazmat knowledge test. Students who successfully take the knowledge test can be issued the H endorsement.

Note: There are no refunds or transfers for this course. This course is excluded from ed2go standard refund and transfer policies. Once access to the course is provided, no refunds or transfers will be allowed.

* Online hazardous materials endorsement training is NOT valid in the State of Washington (WA).
