All CDL drivers, even owner operators, must be registered with a DOT compliant Drug and Alcohol Consortium.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), along with the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT), requires that persons subject to the commercial driver’s license (CDL) requirements and their employers follow alcohol and drug testing rules. These rules include procedures for testing, policy for CDL employees, policy on drug abuse, frequency of tests, a statistics summary and substances tested for.
Let us help you get your drug and alcohol testing set up today. Included in this service is:
— Implementing Drug & Alcohol testing program
— Maintaining required testing records
— Keeping you compliant with DOT and FMCSA rules and regulations
— Drug Free Poster for Business
— Drug and Alcohol Policy for CDL Employees
— Drug and Alcohol Policy pertaining to Drug Abuse
The cost for setting your company up under the Drug and Alcohol Consortium is $250.00 per company. Every January, there is a $250.00 annual membership fee. This service includes setting your company up for required drug testing per the FMCSA’s regulations, printed company forms and placement of drivers into a “pool” for random test selection as well as a completed Drug and Alcohol Policy. The forms for your company’s drug tests will be originals with the required copies and stickers for test placement on samples that the lab will need to process the drug test.
When a pre-employment drug test or random drug test is required, the cost of the drug test is $55.00 and must be paid prior to testing. Breath Alcohol Testing (BAT) runs $81.00 when and includes the urine drug test. BATs are not as often as urine testing but do come up.
