Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

DMV:

Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.

You have to take the knowledge test.. but then you also have to get a TSA background check. it includes fingerprinting it can take 60-90 days for approval. Your local DMV should have the paperwork for you. Mine did At-least. it costs around 100 bucks for the hazmat plus background check.

You will have to apply first by either calling them at 1-877-HAZPRINTS or going to hazprints.com an filling out an application. I believe it is $86.50. You will then need to get fingerprints taken at one of their sites (you can find out where at the hazprint site) and after that, they will start your threat assessment. It will take about 6 to 8 weeks (mine took two) and if cleared, they will notify the DMV and may send you a letter. You are now ready to test. Be sure to check out the training at this site. It works.
