I know we have a few OTR drivers here, and I'd like to ask if you paid to keep the hazmat endorsment on your CDL?

I don't understand the reason behind asking, so don't know if this is enough of an answer. My friend has a hazmat endorsement and I know he pays for it and renews it in order to make more money on the cargo he can carry.

I just wondered if everyone paid the appox. $100 to keep the endorsement, or if they just said heck no, I hardly ever haul that material anyway. I'm sure some don't really have a choice.

I renewed my cdl 2 years ago,dropped the hm cause I didn't need it,and it cost $94 for finger prints,plus the extra state fee,IIRC. If I got a job with a company that requires it,I'd let them pay for it..

I had hazmat on my cdl when i worked for Dekalb county Ga.After
working on the Garbage trucks we had to test drive them and they
said you never know whats in them.Evently i let the hazmat go.I
still have my cdl,but not the blue madical card,i know i would
not be able to pass the hearing test now.
