CDL quote. HAZMAT is product that pose risk to health , safety , and property damage , during transportation.

Not just explosives , or just combustibles. How about radioactive ? corrosive ?

Why have I been halted for not agreeing that " ALL ANSWERS ARE CORRECT "

The qustion is " what ACCURATELY describes hazardous materials...

I am preparing for my HAZMAT endorsement and this is confusing, being halted , and haveing the quote i just referenced under my correct answer. while the incorrect answer is highlighted green and the question is marked wrong.

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.

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

I just went to that page and answered it correctly and it marked it correctly. You're either choosing the wrong answer or misreading the correction. You had it correct one time, but missed it 3 others. I'm not sure why. But I just took that quiz myself to make sure and it marked "All Statements Are Correct" as the correct answer.

Take it again and see what it does. If it marks it wrong, let me know what it says is the correct answer. Take a screenshot if you know how. Otherwise, don't sweat it.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Brett,

I am sure that i am overthinking. To me the most correct answer is the one that quotes the CDL manual.

My mistake was misinterpreting the question. it asked about accurate description, not definition.

A- is the proper "definition" while all others just "describe" some type of HM so all answers are correct.

thanks, please un halt me.. HM is an endorsement I do take seriously.

appreciate your time, Ken

In order to lift the halt you have to work through some review questions. Just read the message that it says on your dashboard. It will give you a link to do some review questions. If you get a few sets of review questions correct your halt will be lifted.
