    Do I need to obtain a certification to be able to test for hazmat at dmv or I can just go take the test at the dmv? like the other test I am in Texas. Any employers that pay for my finger printing for hazmat in south texas

    I'm in the process of adding hazmat to my license. I had to complete the ELDT training as if I were a brand new rookie. I went online, started the video, left it play while I did other things, and passed the test with a 97%. My next step is to go back to the DMV and take another test. (I'm in Pennsylvania)

    I don't think your required to take any course if you had your cdl before 2022 for hazmat. My eldt training is online I just got to take the test at the dmv

    If you never had hazmat before, you will have to take a hazmat course.

    Here's the list to the FMCSA Training Provider Registry. You can search by state and some providers are online. If a provider isn't on the FMCSA's Training Provider Registry, don't use them. The FMCSA may not accept your training.

    Yeah the clown at PennDot told me I needed the ELDT training for hazmat, even with over 20 years holding a class A CDL. Said I couldn't proceed any further until that was done. He gave me everything needed to find a training provider and sent me on my way. I did the course online the next day, now I'm just looking for time to get back to PennDot to do their test

    I guess the look on my face spoke volumes. He looked around and bent down a bit and lowered his voice. "I think it's ######## too".
