    I live in Mississippi. If I want to work in Tennessee, as a gas truck driver, e.g. for Love's, is it easy to transfer my Class A CDL with Hazmat + Tanker endorsement & TWIC from Mississippi to Tennessee?

    Only if your residence changes by moving from Miss to Tenn.

    One CDL with the proper endorsements for any related work anywhere in the USA.

    Everything will transfer ove rexcept the hazmat. You will have to take the written test and do the whole fingerprinting/background check over again

    I did this hazmat transfer one time. Had to retake the hazmat test in the new state, but not the fingerprints and background check. Check with the state you are moving to.

    It depends on what the license expiration date is versus the hazmat expiration date.

    If the new state can give you a license expiration date that is before the HM expiration, you don't have to do the prints/background until it is due.

    If it falls after that you need to do it all over because the background check cannot lapse in the middle of a CDL term. Because you'll have a state-issued card stating that you are cleared.

    Retaking the HM test is up to the individual state requirements.

    That's the way the lady at DMV explained it to me.

    Moving to CA last year I had to retake ALL written tests, even the non-CDL ones but no road test. That included my standard driving license test, tanker, hazmat, doubles & triples, air brakes and motorcycle. Having lived there, I now understand why we put Commiefornia on the ### end of America. The San Andreas fault is in the process of making them an island but it's gonna take another couple thousand years so we're stuck with their BS for now.

    Moving from Commiefornia to Nevada all I had to retake was hazmat. Basically regardless of what you may read you need to check with the state you're dealing with to see their requirements.
