How do I renew a Hazmat CDL endorsement in NY? New York
CDL Practice Makes for a CDL Driver With CDL ClassYou will more than likely receive a HAZMAT endorsement renewal notice separate from your CDL renewal form. This is because a commercial license is valid for eight years, while a hazardous materials endorsement is valid for five.
If you did not pass a HAZMAT test in the last two years, you will have to take the exam. To prepare, study New York's CDL manual. This handy tome of information can be obtained from any NY DMV office or downloaded from the DMV's Web site. You'll next want to take a CDL practice test. This can be found online from a long list of sites.
When you feel certain of passing the CDL test, visit any DMV office and pay a $5 test fee (no appointment needed). If you fail, you can retake the exam, on the spot, but only after paying another $5. Without passing the exam you cannot qualify for a background check.
To apply for the HAZMAT background check, you must:
- Visit any DMV office with a completed Application for Hazardous Materials Endorsement (Form HAZ-44).
- Pay the background check fee of $140.75 with cash or a check, money order, or credit card (Discover, American Express, Visa, MasterCard).
- Hang on to the FS-6T receipt you'll receive after paying the fee. You will need it for when you get fingerprinted. If the DMV office you're applying at cannot do fingerprinting, you'll need to visit a New York state police office listed on form SP-1. Your fingerprints will be done electronically.
If your background check passes, the DMV will mail you an updated Hazmat CDL.
