Using your vehicle to transport any material that qualifies as hazardous and would therefore be harmful to the environment of human health if it were leaked demands a hazmat qualification. What you may not realize is the many of our country’s most frequently transported cargos qualify as hazardous! For instance, gas is considered hazardous as it is highly flammable, while industrial chemicals are usually labelled hazardous for being corrosive and poisonous. You can learn about these properties and other hazardous material classifications by reading the recommended study material in the CDL permit book and answering questions on our hazmat CDL practice test for Rhode Island drivers.

Before we discuss the rules, regulations and safety considerations of hazardous material transportation any further, it is advisable to check whether this is the endorsement exam you should currently be working toward. Only in very rare cases is an H endorsement the only license add-on a commercial driving applicant requires.

All hazardous material drivers who operate a vehicle rated as Class B or Class A must obtain an Air Brakes endorsement, as this braking system is a standard feature for vehicles above Class C.

In pursuit of your air brakes endorsement should you require it, we suggest using our Air Brakes DMV practice permit test and the L endorsement material in the handbook. Unless your vehicle qualifies as Class A, you may then begin using this CDL hazmat practice test for Rhode Island learners to whip your knowledge of containment rules, warning placards, material properties and emergency procedures into shape. Class A applicants will need to delay their study of this material a little longer, pursuing the mandatory Class A Combination Vehicles endorsement first.
