What is a hazmat truck driver?

A HAZMAT truck driver is a driver who has been certified in the transportation of hazardous materials. HAZMAT driver jobs typically employ experienced drivers who have been trained for the correct transportation and handling of dangerous cargo. Drivers who transport hazardous material need to closely monitor their routes for any issues and also be judicious with practicing proper safety at all times.

Hazardous material can be anything that can or has the potential to harm the environment, animals or humans. Some items that can be considered hazardous are:

  • Gases
  • Flammable or combustible liquids
  • Explosives
  • Poisons
  • Oxidizers
  • Radioactive material
  • Flammable or combustible solids
How do I become a hazmat truck driver?
Drivers who take HAZMAT trucking jobs need more than just a CDL since they are more dangerous than hauling typical freight. A HAZMAT endorsement or code H is required before a driver can be certified to haul hazardous materials. Companies who deal in the transportation of hazardous materials need drivers, so many of them are willing to help pay or pay fully for the certification. To obtain the certificate, a driver needs to complete the application and pass the HAZMAT knowledge test. Additional endorsements are required for the transportation of hazardous materials in tankers as a tanker endorsement or code N. A code x, which is a combination of hazardous material, and a tanker endorsement is also another option that can streamline the process.
