Full Answer

The HAZMAT Endorsement Threat Assessment Program allows the applicant to add a hazardous materials endorsement to his commercial driver's license. Because this is considered high-risk, the TSA requires fingerprinting as part of its security threat assessment procedures. This endorsement only applies to commercial transfer of hazardous material, so it cannot be added to a personal driverss license. AS of July 2015, the application can be completed online through TSA or over the phone at 1-855-347-8371 weekdays from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
