Frequently Asked Questions
What are the reasons for conducting a DOT drug test?
There are five reasons why an employer may request a DOT drug test:
- Reasonable Suspicion
- Return to Duty
What substances are tested for in DOT urine tests?
A DOT drug test screens for the following classes of drugs:
- Amphetamines (Amphetamine, Methamphetamine, MDMA, MDA)
- Marijuana (THC)
- Opioids (Codeine, Morphine, 6-AM (Heroin), Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, Oxycodone, Oxymorphone)
- Phencyclidine (PCP)
DOT drug testing rules specify confirmatory testing for any non-negative screens.
What happens if my employee has a prescription for a prohibited substance?
Individuals who drive commercial motor vehicles may not use habit-forming drugs, narcotics or amphetamines.
However, if a driver is prescribed one of these substances by a licensed medical practitioner, it may be allowed.
The practitioner must be familiar with the driver’s medical history and confirm that the prescribed drug will not adversely affect the driver’s ability to safely operate the vehicle.
What happens if my employee refuses their drug test?
If an applicant for employment refuses a drug test or tests positive, they are not permitted to perform safety-sensitive duties. Existing employees who test positive (or refuse a test) may not return to employment that entails safety-sensitive duties until they have seen a substance abuse professional (SAP) and successfully complete return-to-duty drug testing.
If a test comes back positive, we will specify the specific drug metabolites being used. Employers must report the number of verified positive drug tests on their annual MIS reports upon DOT request.
How can I make sure my DOT drug testing program is in compliance?
Alliance 2020 can perform a DOT drug testing program audit if you’re unsure about your compliance status.
For those falling under FMCSA regulations, the FMCSA provides a Carrier Compliance Questionnaire to help check your compliance status. Click here to view this checklist.
