We Provide and Manage All Federally Mandated Testing Requirements:

Pre-Employment Drug Testing

Before operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) for the first time, a truck driver or other CDL driver must undergo a drug test and receive a negative test result. Employers & owner/operators must ensure that this test is conducted.

Random Drug and Alcohol Testing

Owner/operators must participate in a DOT-approved random drug and alcohol testing program. The testing rate for random drug testing is 50% per year, while the testing rate for random alcohol testing is 10% per year. Employers have the option of joining or creating their own pool.

Post-accident Drug and Alcohol Testing

If a CDL driver is involved in an accident that meets certain criteria–fatalities, injuries requiring immediate medical attention, or towing of any vehicle–that driver may be required to undergo drug and alcohol testing.

Reasonable Suspicion Drug and Alcohol Testing

If you have reasonable suspicion to believe that a driver is using drugs or alcohol while on duty, the driver may be required to undergo drug and alcohol testing.

Return-to-Duty Drug and Alcohol Testing

If a driver has violated the DOT drug and alcohol testing regulations, he or she must undergo a return-to-duty drug and/or alcohol test before returning to safety-sensitive duties.

Follow-up Drug and Alcohol Testing

If a driver has violated the DOT drug and alcohol testing regulations, he or she may be subject to follow-up testing for up to five years.

Requirements of the DOT’s Drug Testing Program

As the main federal agency responsible for ensuring the safety and efficiency of the transportation industry nationwide, the DOT sets safety standards and regulations for all modes of transportation and oversees the development and maintenance of the nation’s transportation infrastructure. A major part of these regulations is the DOT’s drug and alcohol testing program for all “safety-sensitive” employees like drivers, pilots, conductors, and engineers.  The DOT sets these drug testing regulations because of the impact these employees can have on the safety of everyone they share the road or air with. Under the DOT’s drug testing program, these employees are tested at the following intervals:
  • Pre-employment – All new employees must undergo drug testing before they can perform safety-sensitive duties.
  • Random testing – Random drug testing must be conducted throughout the year for employees performing safety-sensitive duties. The number of random tests conducted each year varies depending on the specific DOT agency.
  • Post-accident – Drug and alcohol testing is required for employees involved in accidents that meet certain criteria, such as fatalities, injuries requiring medical attention, or damage to vehicles requiring towing.
  • Reasonable suspicion – Employers are required to conduct drug and alcohol testing if they suspect an employee is under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It can be based on a variety of factors, like slurred speech or bloodshot eyes.
  • Return-to-duty – Employees who test positive for drugs or alcohol must undergo a return-to-duty drug test before they can perform safety-sensitive duties again.
  • Follow-up testing – Employees who have tested positive for drugs or alcohol must undergo follow-up drug testing after their return to work for a period of time. Once the employee has completed the follow-up drug testing requirements, they may be allowed to return to their job duties.
Complying with the DOT’s Drug Testing Program requirements is an extremely important part of being in the transportation industry. Failure to comply with these requirements can result in severe consequences for employees, including fines, suspension of driving privileges, and loss of employment.

How Are DOT Drug Tests Conducted?

The main method of testing the DOT requires is through a urine test, which is conducted according to specific procedures and protocols set forth by the DOT to ensure consistency and accuracy of results. Generally speaking, the process for a DOT drug test is as follows:
  • Notification – The employee is notified that they have been selected for a drug test and are provided with information about the testing process, including how to prepare for the test.
  • Collection Site – The employee is directed to a designated collection site, where they will present a photo ID and complete the necessary paperwork.
  • Collection Process – A trained collector will supervise the collection of the employee’s urine or other bodily fluids. The employee must provide a sufficient sample for testing and follow strict guidelines to ensure the integrity of the sample.
  • Laboratory Testing – The sample is sent to a certified laboratory for testing. The laboratory tests the sample for a range of drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, opiates, amphetamines, and phencyclidine (PCP).
  • Medical Review Officer (MRO) Review – If the test results are positive, a Medical Review Officer (MRO) reviews the results to determine if there is a legitimate medical explanation for the positive result. The employee may be subject to disciplinary action if there is no medical explanation.
  • Reporting – The laboratory reports the results to the employer or designated DOT agency. The employer is responsible for notifying the employee of the test results and any necessary actions.
The Department of Transportation (DOT) strictly regulates and closely monitors drug tests to ensure the testing process is fair, accurate, and consistent. Conducting regular drug tests helps the DOT identify any drug use among safety-sensitive employees, which can then be addressed to ensure that the transportation system and the general public remain safe. The DOT takes these measures seriously to promote safety and prevent accidents caused by impaired employees.

Benefits and Drawbacks of DOT Drug Testing

Like any part of your business, there are benefits and drawbacks to the drug testing requirements set by the DOT. First and foremost, it’s important to remember that these regulations are mandatory. This means that no matter how beneficial or unfavorable you think they are, you have to comply with them to stay in business. That said, it can be helpful to look at some of the benefits and drawbacks of DOT drug testing.


  • Enhances safety
  • Promotes compliance
  • Protects your company’s reputation
  • Keeps your employees healthy


  • Costs prohibitive
  • Can disrupt operations
  • False positives or other inaccurate results can hurt productivity
  • Drug testing can be invasive and may violate the privacy of your employees
Overall, the DOT drug testing program provides numerous benefits for transportation companies but also has some drawbacks that companies should consider when implementing and managing the program. Ultimately, weighing these benefits and drawbacks is an important part of your company’s approach to the program.
