    I have a few questions:

    Just sold my home and headed to GA in 2 weeks

    do you only need to take your hazmat over? All written test? Will Georgia just take my license and give me a Georgia one? Help me plz

    thanks in advance

    I transferred my CDL from AL to GA. I could tell you about that if you wanted to know.

    My rough understanding because CA is so strict, things could be different , but did yours change over?

    For what it’s worth, when I moved from Missouri to Kansas I had to re fingerprint and retake my hazmat, even tho I had over a year and a 1/2 left before it expired. The nice ole gal at the DMV said anytime there is a address change across state lines this has to be done. Who knows if that’s even right, or if it’s just a Kansas thing. I just let mine drop because I didn’t need it anymore.

    When I transferred my CDL from AL to GA, all I had to do was pay a small fee and take the hazmat test again. That's all.

    I don't remember exactly how much the fee was, but I estimate the fee was around $20.

    @superpet39 --

    To what part of GA are you moving, may I ask?

    Also--are you still going to be working for Linde/Praxair?

    If not--who's the next lucky employer?

    Why are you asking here, instead of the GA DMV?

    If you want the correct answers you go to the source - not the peanut gallery.
