Hazardous Materials Endorsement

Federal Rulemaking has been issued as a component of the USA PATRIOT Act that regulates the issuance or renewal of a Commercial Driver's License (CDL) with a hazardous materials endorsement. The major impact of this rulemaking is that persons involved in the transportation of hazardous materials will need to be fingerprinted and pay additional Federal fees as part of a Federal security risk assessment. PennDOT must receive clearance from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration for any driver wishing to transport hazardous materials. This clearance must be obtained each time your CDL with a hazardous materials endorsement is issued or renewed.
