Please note this important information
about applying for a Hazardous Materials (Hazmat)
endorsement on you Florida CDL:
Your application for a new Hazmat or renewal of your
current Hazmat-endorsed Florida CDL begins here, by
filling out your application form on-line before you
go to the driver license office. Click on the button
below when you are done reading these instructions.
You may also print out a blank practice
or worksheet application form. Adobe Acrobat Reader
is needed to display and print this practice/worksheet
application. If not already installed on your computer,
this free software may be downloaded
from the Adobe website.
- Fill out all of the blanks that apply to you.
When you have completed all required blanks and
answered the six questions at the end of the form,
click on the button labeled “Check Form for Errors”.
- You will be prompted to add any required information
that is missing, except for your driver license
number. The driver license number should be left
blank if you are transferring from another state
and do not yet have a Florida driver license.
- Some information requirements depend on answers
to other questions. Examples: If you were not born
in the US, you will need to provide your Alien Registration
Number. If you served in the military, you will
need to provide the branch, discharge date if applicable,
and type of discharge. Make sure to obtain and provide
the correct information if it applies to you.
- When no required information appears to be missing,
you will see a screen displaying all of your entries
for final review. Check again that all of your entries
are correct, with no typing errors. Mistakes may
cause later delays in receiving your Hazmat.
- When you are sure the information you have entered
is complete and correct, click on the link labeled
“Click Here to Print the TSA Hazmat Application
Form”. Adobe Acrobat Reader is needed to display
and print your completed form. If not already installed
on your computer, this free software may be downloaded
from the Adobe website. Print your completed form.
- Bring the printed form to one of the "hazmat"
license offices to continue your application
process. At the driver license office, you will
be issued a new CDL, pay a $91 Hazmat application
fee in addition to the other fees for driver license
issuance, and be fingerprinted. Your application
form will be certified and submitted by the driver
license examiner, with your new Florida driver license
number if necessary, at the end of this process.
IF YOU HAVE ALREADY COMPLETED THE FULL PROCESS IN
A DRIVER LICENSE OFFICE, AND HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED TO
SUBMIT A NEW FORM - - NOTE SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS AFTER
THE FORM IS PRINTED.
