    I didn’t find a thread covering this. I’m wanting to get my hazmat and unsure about what to do first. Do I take the test at bmv and then get the fingerprints and background check or the other way around? I can’t seem to find a straight answer on this. I’m licensed in Indiana if that matters. Thanks

    Study on here for hazmat and tankers. Use DMV GENIE app also. The free version. Then take the test at your DMV office. Then if you pass, then get your background check.

    Background check, then when it clears you get to take the test.

    When I got my Hazmat a couple years ago in California I took the test at the DMV first and then did my background check and fingerprints

    I got my Hazmat earlier this year. First, I went to get fingerprints/background check and exactly one week later I got my letter in the mail. Then, went to DMV.
