Florida CDL Handbook: Tank Vehicles
8. Tank Vehicles
This Section Covers
- Inspecting Tank Vehicles
- Driving Tank Vehicles
- Safe Driving Rules
This section has information needed to pass the CDL knowledge test for driving a tank vehicle. (You should also study Sections 2, 5, and 6). A tank endorsement is required for certain vehicles that transport liquids or gases. The liquid or gas does not have to be a hazardous material. A tank endorsement is only required if your vehicle needs a Class A or B CDL and you want to haul a liquid or liquid gas in a permanently mounted cargo tank rated at 119 gallons or more or a portable tank rated at 1,000 gallons or more.
Before loading, unloading, or driving a tanker, inspect the vehicle. This makes sure that the vehicle is safe to carry the liquid or gas and is safe to drive.
