Washington HazMat Endorsement Guide
What is a HazMat Endorsement?
You, a professional CDL driver, need your Washington HazMat endorsement to haul hazardous materials in your freight. These loads carry hazardous substances that can adversely affect you and the environment. Thus, they require a special endorsement to be added to your Washington CDL to transport them. Additionally, a driver with a hazardous materials endorsement is subject to specific responsibilities beyond the standard requirements set by the Department of Transportation (DOT) of a standard CDL driver without a HazMat endorsement.
The state of Washington has a separate set of regulations to obtain a HazMat endorsement. To learn the steps to get yours head to the Washington Department of Licensing Website.
