CDL DRIVERS: Indiana BMV Announces Hazmat Fingerprinting Changes



Hazmat Fingerprinting ChangesEffective August 17, 2009, the Hazmat applications and fingerprinting for the state of Indiana are being coordinated by L1 Enrollment Services, an agent of TSA.

  • Starting August 10, 2009, Indiana drivers can either apply online at or by calling the L1 driver call center at 1-877-429-7746.  Drivers must complete the application either online or by calling the Driver Call Center before appearing for fingerprinting.
  • Drivers cannot get fingerprinted at an L1 site until August 17, 2009
  • Once a driver has completed the application, they can visit any of the nine L1 Enrollment Services locations here in Indiana in addition to the numerous other locations, located in the 38 other states that participate.  Indiana will have locations in Indianapolis, Evansville, Ft. Wayne, Logansport, Merrillville, Terre Haute, Richmond, and Seymour. For a complete listing visit   
  • Appointments are highly recommended.  Walk-ins will not be turned away; however, a driver may have to wait until there is an opening.

Once a driver has been approved for the HME endorsement, he or she may visit any Indiana license branch to complete the license process.  Please note that beginning 1/1/09, anyone applying for a license in Indiana will be issued an interim license at the branch (if their current license is expired or set to expire in less than 14 days) and will be mailed the actual credential in 10 days or less.

Drivers seeking to add the Hazmat endorsement will still be required to take the Hazmat test at a local Indiana BMV branch. The driver may take the test prior to or after the TSA Threat Assessment (fingerprinting/background checks), but the written test results are only valid for 180 days.
