TWIC and HAZMAT endorsement fingerprinting
We've been getting some calls recently from members regarding fingerprinting needed for their hazmat commercial driver license renewals, or for their Transportation Worker Identification Credential cards. Though it's possible to just show up at a fingerprinting site, it's highly recommended that you go through a pre-enrollment online and set up an actual appointment. First go to the Universal Enroll website here. Then click on the box for either the TWIC card or the HME (Hazardous Materials Endorsement for your CDL license). Follow the instructions and click on “Next”at the bottom of each page to proceed to the next page. YOU SHOULD ALLOW 4 WEEKS TO PROCESS YOUR FINGERPRINTING. Don’t wait until you get a notice from DMV – if you wait for official notice.
