    My DMV in Florida only allows one test at a time. They say they’re “short-staffed.”

    .... hmmm....here in nm they put them on a computer ( all the ones you want to take ) then it automatically grades each one - pass / fail - then you go to the clerk and pay to have the endorsement / restriction placed on the current license . What being short staffed most likey means is that the clerk is not fully aware about how to add it on. Where i used to live , they had two clerks and neither one of them would do anything for a CDL holder , had to go to abq to get it done. Might have to go to another DMV to get it done. Good luck

    I have all my endorsements including Hazmat. I just went last week to renew, only reason I went to the local office was to take my HAZMAT. No other endorsements did I not need to take. If you go to add endorsements separately (ones that you don’t have) each week or whenever, you’re going to be paying additional fees each time, just get it done all at once. Study for it.

    States do this differently. If you aren't going to drive commercially between the first endorsement and the later ones, take the tests one at a time and then renew/update your CDL once after you have them all.
