myBMV > Commercial Driver's License > Hazardous Materials Endorsement Hazardous Materials Endorsement

In order to comply with the threat assessment measures required by the U.S.A. Patriot Act, all individuals who hold a commercial driver license with a hazardous materials endorsement must have their fingerprints recorded.

If  you do not currently hold a hazardous materials endorsement, you will need to complete the threat assessment before the endorsement can be issued to you. If you currently hold a hazardous materials endorsement and you are renewing your commercial driver's license, you will need to complete a new threat assessment and pass the hazardous materials knowledge examination.

If you are moving to Indiana from another state and have a hazardous material endorsement on your out-of-state commercial driver's license, you may need to complete a new threat assessment and pass the hazardous materials knowledge examination. The threat assessment approval must cover the validity period of your new Indiana commercial driver's license or be expired for less than six months. Any Indiana license branch can determine if your current threat assessment needs to be updated.

The threat assessment approval is valid for a period of five years. More information on the threat assessment is available on the Transportation Security Administration's website.

Fingerprinting Service Locations

Fingerprinting services are not available at Bureau of Motor Vehicles license branches. Instead, all hazardous materials endorsement applications and fingerprinting services are conducted at TSA approved enrollment centers

Indiana drivers can apply for a hazardous materials endorsement online at or by contacting the Enrollment Center at 1-855-347-8371. You must complete the application before being fingerprinted. Once you have been approved for the hazardous materials endorsement, you may visit a license branch to complete your renewal process.

Enrollment centers strictly enforce the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) HME Threat Assessment Program’s identity and citizenship/immigration documentation requirements. The name the applicant provides at enrollment must match what is on his or her documents unless there is a court-ordered document that links the different names. Please note that the common combinations of (1) driver’s license and (2) Social Security card or DOT medical card are no longer a valid combination of items to bring for enrollment. Many drivers have been through the TSA security threat assessment before and may not be aware of the new document requirements. Please review the Requirements before visiting a site to be fingerprinted.
