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

Did you not just get answers in the other category? Haz is a federal thing, the check is same in all states.

Mine have always come back in 14 days (original and two renewals).

Also helps if you have a TWIC (or vice versa) as they use the same BG Check System.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

I will add that while I don't have twic , I worked in healthcare for 20 years as a registered respiratory therapist. I worked travel contracts the last 6 or so years and unlike nursing where 1 license gets them 38 states, I had to go through FBI checks for every state I maintained a professional license in (9) so I had to be fingerprinted yet again (money thing I'm sure). Mine was really fast. They've known who I am for years and my locations where I lived both permanently and temporarily. They do that when you're licensed for the job I did. Trucking compliance seems easy compared to keeping up with all those states requirements simultaneously. I got so used to pulling up to a police station and telling them I needed to be fingerprinted and the incredulous look on their faces.
