HazMat endorsement question

I recently (Wednesday 9-3) applied for my HazMat endorsement. Went to the collection center and they took my fingerprints. Friday (9-5), I got on TSA's website to check the status of my application and it said a letter was mailed to me regarding my application. Do I need to be concerned? Do they always act so quickly?

Just a question

I was told by a couple of drivers that the tractor is still a commercial vehicle and therefore I have to keep it at 55

Just a question

Driving bobtail in a 2 axle tractor, is the speed limit 65 m ph or do I have to obey the 3 or more axle speed of 55 mph? I've asked several people and get different answers.

Update

Just wanted to say hi to everyone and give an update. I have made my career choice. My rig is going to be a beautiful 45' 45,000 lb. tow truck. Now before you start grimacing like you just bit a turd, please let me explain. I will be facing the same challenges as you do, navigating that beast through city streets and dealing with not-so-understanding drivers, but I'm doing it with somebody's 70 ft.+ rig attached to my already cumbersome rig. But know that there will be someone out there looking out for you should you need help. And please don't look upon me with disgust in my choice of careers. It will just give me a better understanding of the whole concept of trucking, as I will see it from both sides. Much love and respect to all.
