Directions to the nearest fingerprinting station? Who'da thunk it?

| 2/1/2005

The Transportation Security Administration has established a new Web site to provide more information for hazmat endorsement applicants. At you will be able to submit your application, pay for your application, and obtain directions to a fingerprinting station nearest you.

As of Jan. 31, CDL holders seeking a hazmat endorsement for the first time must undergo a fingerprint-based background check. Drivers who are renewing their hazardous materials endorsements and those who are transferring the endorsements from one state to another do not have to undergo a fingerprint-based background check until May 31.

If you need assistance processing by phone or to find a site location, you can call 1-877- 429-7746 between 7a.m. and 9 p.m. EST Monday through Friday.
