So how many drivers here have used the High Road exclusively to prepare for your HAZMAT endorsement? Also, anyone from Kentucky?

Just curious. I know it's great for everything else and see no reason why it couldn't be used exclusively, but double checking.

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Awesome.. thanks guys. I went through it the other day and did well, but my other half kept dismissing the idea that if that's what I studied, I'd be prepared. So phooey on him lol. I go for my fingerprints next Monday and will keep repeating that module until I get the authorization to test.

I'm planning on using it when I start CDL school, since I can't get it before I have my CDL apparently. I should do it now but I'm just reviewing everything needed to get my permit atm. Passing all the practice exams I can find online right now, so I feel confident.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

A bit late to the party here, but I too used High Road’s HAZMAT training exclusively, passing the HAZMAT tests in Montana and Texas.

Okay so I got my fingerprints done a couple weeks ago and received my approval to test when I got home Wednesday night.. so this morning I added all endorsements to my CDL. The questions didn't quite line up with Kentucky on the HAZMAT , but was able to figure it out and pass. My exam wanted you to know the class numbers... 1.1, 1.2, 1 3, and 8 primarily. There were also several questions regarding multiple compressed gas cylinders and how they're to be secured if not in racks. It was pretty much common sense, I thought, but then in my previous healthcare field I dealt with compressed gas cylinders frequently.

Anywho.. like Pokemon.. I got em all. Thanks Brett for having the endorsement info built into the High Road.
