Drug Tests For Truck Drivers To Stay DOT Compliant

Pre Employment Testing

Truck drivers must pass a pre-employment drug screening before being hired or performing safety-sensitive duties to become DOT compliant.

Post-Accident Testing

FMCSA post-accident drug testing is required by truck drivers after he or she is involved in an accident to stay DOT compliant.

Random Testing

Commercial truck drivers are required to take randomized drug testing. Random alcohol tests are done prior to, during, or directly after a delivery.

Reasonable Suspicion Testing

Commercial truck drivers must submit a FMCSA drug or alcohol test if their employer or supervisor suspects drug or alcohol abuse.

Return-To-Duty Testing

Drug tests are required for truck drivers when returning to duty if they were penalized for previously disobeying DOT compliance regulations.

Follow-up Testing

Once a commercial truck driver has returned to duty after DOT compliance violations, they will have regular follow up drug screenings.


DOT Clearinghouse

If your organization still hasn’t complied with the DOT Clearinghouse, you shouldn’t waste any more time. The DOT Clearinghouse impacts your entire hiring process and can be a complete mess to sort through by yourself.

At New Era Drug Testing we have a dedicated Clearinghouse team that will help guide your organization through the set up process so that you stay DOT compliant and avoid any costly penalties and fines.
