The security threat assessment is now initiated through the Hazardous Material Endorsement Enrollment website, www.hazprints.com, not at the driver license station.
You should complete the TSA HAZPRINT driver application on the Hazardous Material Endorsement Enrollment website, www.hazprints.com, or by calling the HazPrint help desk at 877-HAZPRINT (877-429-7746). The operator at the desk will guide you through the process and ensure the application is completed correctly. You can also call the help desk at any time if you have questions about the website. It is important to note that the application must be completed either online or through the help desk, prior to arriving at the fingerprint capture location. It cannot be done at the fingerprinting site.
Included with the application process is the payment of a $86.50 fee. There are three forms of payment accepted: credit card, eCheck and money order. You can pay by credit card directly on the website or by providing the information to the operator at the HazPrint help desk. Electronic payments are the most secure and convenient and will save time at the fingerprint collection site. For those drivers who choose not to pay electronically, the driver must bring a money order in the amount of $86.50, made out to Integrated Biometric Technology, LLC (TSA’s agent for the HazPrint Program), to the fingerprint collection site. Remember, whatever payment method is chosen, you must complete the application online or by calling the help desk in advance of being fingerprinted, as the fingerprint collection site cannot fingerprint a driver who has not completed the HAZPRINT application and paid the $86.50 fee.
Your fingerprints can be collected at one of more than 100 fixed and mobile sites in the United States. The Hazardous Material Endorsement Enrollment website, www.hazprints.com, and the HazPrint help desk, 877-HAZPRINT (877-429-7746), are the best sources of information on current site locations, operating hours, and driving directions to the site. Drivers from any of the participating agent states can be fingerprinted at any of the agent’s sites even those in another state. You will be required to provide two forms of identification prior to being fingerprinted. Please refer to the "proper ID types" listed at Hazardous Material Endorsement Enrollment website, www.hazprints.com. In addition to being fingerprinted, the driver will be asked to review and electronically sign the application to verify its accuracy.
NOTE: The fingerprint capture location only collects and forwards the electronic application and fingerprints. They do not have specific information about the program, nor will they receive status reports after the submission is made.
Based on the data provided on the HAZPRINT application, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will perform a threat assessment for each driver applicant. The results of this assessment will be provided directly to the Tennessee Department of Transportation. The applicant will also receive a letter from TSA with the results of the assessment. Take this letter to a Drivers License Station as it will indicate that you have been cleared for issuance of the hazardous material endorsement.
Approximately six weeks after the applicant has been fingerprinted, if he/she has not received a letter from the TSA, information on the status of an application should be available at the HazPrint help desk at 877-HAZPRINT (877-429-7746).
When the applicant has been cleared by TSA for issuance of the Hazardous Material Endorsement, they must proceed to a Driver Licensee Station with the TSA approval letter.
