HAM Certificate instead of Hazmat Endorsement

How to Get Your Hazardous Agricultural Materials Certificate

Transporting hazardous materials usually requires a motorist to obtain the commercial hazardous materials (HazMat) endorsement to a commercial license pursuant to Section 15275. However, a motorist with a Class C license employed in agriculture may avoid the commercial license entirely by obtaining a Hazardous Agricultural Materials Certificate under Section 12804.2.

To obtain this HAM certificate, you must successfully complete the HAM transportation program offered by the California Highway Patrol (or in some cities, a private program or instructor approved by the CHP). The instructor will give you a Verification of Training form, a copy of which you must send to DMV along with a $12 application fee within 10 days of issuance.

Finally, you must obtain a medical clearance form from DMV and submit it with your application.
