DOT Alcohol Testing

US Department of Transportation (DOT)-certified drug and alcohol test collection is in compliance with applicable protocols by collectors including limted oversight of collectors and service agents by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The agency is responsible for ensuring that motor carriers comply with federal drug testing regulations.

These regulations require commercial motor carriers to have a drug testing program that covers transportation safety-sensitive employees who operate commercial motor vehicles with a gross vehicle rating of 26,001 pounds or more.

The DOT drug testing process for urine collection requires that only a collector who meets DOT requirements can perform the collection. At the collection center, the collector must verify the driver's identification and then have the driver empty his pockets before proceeding with the collection.

The driver must provide at least 45 milliliters of urine. The collector makes an initial inspection of the specimen, which includes checking the temperature of the specimen, then divides the specimen into a primary and split specimen, seals the bottles and signs paperwork. 

The specimen will be sent to the lab and the results forwarded to the MRO. Test results will be made available as soon as possible
