Drivers of commercial vehicles must be trained in the security risks of transporting hazardous materials. This training must include how to recognize and respond to possible security threats. The regulations also require that drivers have special training before driving a vehicle transporting certain flammable gas materials or highway route controlled quantities of radioactive materials. In addition, drivers transporting cargo tanks and portable tanks must receive specialized training. Each driver’s employer or his or her designated representative must provide such training.
Most drivers of commercial vehicles worry about passing the written hazmat endorsement test. However, there is much more to be learned. It is necessary to receive updates on changing rules and regulations. Drives must also attend hazmat training courses to ensure that their training is up to date.
We offer CDL Hazmat practice tests for the most important areas of concern. For the absolute latest rules and regulations, you should obtain an up-to-date copy of the Hazardous Materials Regulations, which are commonly referred to as 49 CFR 100 – 185.
