  • Be a U.S citizen, legal permanent resident.
  • Have held a valid commercial learner's permit (CLP) and/or a temporary license or Employment Authorization Document to earn a hazardous material endorsement or a valid CDL.
  • Pass a knowledge test for H endorsement.
  • Undergoing a Federal Security Threat Assessment (background check) is required for any drivers, whether intending to obtain, renew or transfer a hazardous materials endorsement on a state-issued commercial driver's license.

How many questions are on the Hazmat Endorsement test?

Most state CDL hazmat tests, also known as the Hazmat Endorsement Knowledge Exam or HazMat endorsement written test, are usually made up of 30 items of the total question. However, this may differ depending on the state where you live. To pass your CDL hazmat test, you will need to receive a score of at least 80%. This score correlates to 24 correct answers or more.

ed2go courses will help you gain the skills you need to obtain an entry-level position in most cases. However, you should always research the job market in your area before enrolling.

Can I get financial assistance?

ed2go courses are non-credit, so they do not qualify for federal aid, FAFSA, and Pell Grant. In some states, vocational rehab or workforce development boards may provide funding to take our courses. Additionally, you may qualify for financial assistance if you meet certain requirements. Learn more about financial assistance.
