Agricultural Hazardous Materials Transportation Endorsement (AHMTE) Program
A new program, known as the Agricultural Hazardous Materials Transportation Endorsement (AHMTE) Program, is being offered to farmers and farm employees through local Farm Bureau offices. The training is provided by the California Safety Training Corporation (CSTC). Those who finish this program and pass the test at the end will receive a special training verification document DL 267. DL 267 holders are exempted from the hazardous materials provisions of the California Commercial Driver's License (CDL) program, including but not limited to Drug and Alcohol Testing (DOT).
