Preparing for Your Hazmat Test
Explosions. Jets of flaming material. Fires. Not exactly something you think about happening to a box containing lithium batteries. Although rare, lithium batteries can short circuit, or experience thermal runway. This is one of the many reasons there are so many regulations surrounding the shipping of an item considered hazardous.
A comprehensive understanding of procedures related to your role as a shipper of hazardous materials is important when you are taking your written test for the Hazmat Endorsement. The process to receive your endorsement can be an arduous task. Failure to prepare for your written exam is something that you can control, and our Hazmat Practice Test makes narrowing down the areas in which you need further study very helpful.
What is the Hazmat Endorsement Test?
The Hazmat test is a written test taken at your local DMV. It is designed to ensure that any individual who will be transporting hazardous materials is adequately trained in all aspects of hazmat regulation and handling.
Before you are allowed to drive a vehicle requiring Hazmat placards, you will need to have your hazardous material certification in order to comply with Federal Regulation. It is important to understand how to properly handle these materials in order to keep yourself and others safe. Also, since the events that occurred on 9/11, the U.S. government wants to make sure that those handling potentially harmful materials are will not cause purposeful harm or damage to anyone or anything. Failure to comply with any regulations in their entirety can result in both fines and jail time.
What do I Need Before I Even Take the Hazmat Test?
Before you even attempt to take the Hazmat test, you should make sure you are qualified. Expect to have the following items in legal or working order.
- Make sure you have a state issued driver’s license that has not expired.
- You must have a valid Commercial driver’s License (CDL).
- You are required to show proof of legal U.S. citizenship.
- You must present your Birth Certificate (must be original, no photocopies are accepted).
- You must have a valid Social Security number.
- You must be able to pass a vision test.
- You must be able to pass a background check by the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) and pay the fee.
- You must be able and ready to pay for any fees associated with the Hazmat test.
- You must have a valid medical card issued by the Department of Transportation (DOT).
What Kind of Information Will I Need to Know in Order to Pass the Hazmat Test?
The written test is part of the endorsement that you have the most control over. It would be unpleasant to pass all requirements and your background check only to find yourself under-prepared for the written test. If you are applying for a Hazardous Materials Endorsement, you will have access to all the study material you will need in your state-issued CDL Drivers Manual. Study the chapter on hazardous materials thoroughly. Attending hazardous materials training courses often supplied by employers can be very helpful as well.
When you study for the test, be sure to focus on:
- Federal and State guidelines.
- Being able to identify the packaging labels on a container of hazardous material.
- Understand shipping papers.
- Know what each U.S. DOT HazMat Placard stands for.
- Show an acute awareness of security measures.
The best way to know what kinds of questions to prepare for is to take our Hazmat Practice Quiz and our Hazmat Practice Test. A practice run will familiarize you with the actual questions you will see on the DMV test. Any missed questions can viewed and used as a jumping point for further study. Helpful ways to study for this test include:
- Creating flash cards based on information in the CDL Manual as well as questions from the test. Flash cards will be convenient for you to carry on your person, allowing you to study in your free time.
- Doing our Hazmat Practice Test often, making sure you are not memorizing specific questions, but rather, the concepts behind the questions.

Your Hazmat certification is valid for 5 years.
What Will Happen if I Fail the Hazmat Test?
If you should fail the written test administered by the DMV, don’t worry. You will be able to retake the test. Because the rules may vary from state to state, check with your local DMV for state specific regulations. Most of the time you will be able to retake the test the next business day. Keep in mind, however, that all testing fees will have to be paid upon re-taking the test. Should you not pass your TSA Background Check, you will receive a letter from the TSA with instructions on how to proceed.
