What is a Drug and Alcohol Consortium?

USDOT requires the testing of safety-sensitive drivers and owner operators. A Drug and Alcohol Consortium is an effective solution for businesses that need to comply with safety regulations and maintain a productive workforce.
This arrangement enables businesses to efficiently manage employee drug testing and to receive support in developing and implementing a comprehensive drug and alcohol policy. Here at DOT Compliance Group we are a certified third party administrator (CTP/A).

What Types of Testing are Offered?

Get to Know the Different Types of Drug and Alcohol Testing for Your Business

There are different drug and alcohol tests depending on what situation you fall in.

Pre-Employment Test

The FMCSA mandates pre-employment drug and alcohol testing. Before a CDL driver can operate a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV), the employer must receive a negative result.

Post-Accident Test

After an accident, the FMCSA mandates a drug and alcohol test. However, there are some exceptions that you should be aware of.

Reasonable Suspicion Test

Reasonable suspicion testing is a necessary step when a driver is suspected of being under the influence. This test can be conducted without delay to promptly address the issue. CDL supervisors must complete a reasonable suspicion course to fulfill their obligations.

Return To Duty Test

Return to duty testing is mandatory for drivers who have tested positive or refused testing. To begin the process, they must successfully complete a substance abuse program that meets USDOT standards. Once completed, a negative test result is necessary before the driver can resume work.

Follow-Up Test

After completing the return to duty steps, a follow-up test is necessary. The substance abuse professional (SAP) will prescribe a minimum of 6 observed tests within a span of 12 months. This minimum requirement of 6 tests can be extended up to an additional 4 years.

Random Testing

CDL drivers must undergo random drug testing throughout the year. If an employer is the sole driver and does not lease a commercial motor vehicle (CMV), they must still ensure that random testing is conducted on at least 2 employees. This can be done through a drug and alcohol consortium pool (random testing program).
