New Requirement For HAZMAT Endorsement

Now when renewing a CDL with HAZMAT endorsement, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is requiring proof of citizenship along with identification.  When you get fingerprinted for the background check to receive a HAZMAT endorsement on your CDL, you need to take certain forms of identification in order to complete the fingerprinting and background check requirements.  One primary form or two secondary forms of identification are now required.  An example of a primary form of identification is a U.S. passport or card which shows U.S. citizenship.  Only one primary form of identification is required.  If you can not provide a U.S. passport or card then you must bring in two forms of secondary identification one of which must show proof of U.S. Citizenship and one government issued photo identification.  Examples of secondary forms of identification include:
Original or certified copy of birth certificate
Social Security Card
U.S. Military ID
Military discharge papers
DOT Medical Card
Marriage Certificate
Voter Registration Card
State Issued ID Card
State Issued Drivers License
Remember, for the secondary identification, one form must show proof of U.S. citizenship and one must be a government issued phot ID.  Please contact Kevin at the IFCA office if you have any questions.
