DOT / Federal Drug Testing

Drug and alcohol testing programs regulated by the Federal Department of Transportation (DOT) and other federal agencies have strict guidelines that can often cause confusion with employers. The objective is to safeguard drivers against accidents caused by drug or alcohol use when operating a commercial vehicle. The process itself is the part which often causes anxiety for employers due to the stringent rules in place for deployment.

We are experts in testing for DOT and other federal  drug testing programs. We’ve been helping our clients to meet and exceed their DOT testing requirements since the Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 was implemented.  If you’re an employer subject to more than one DOT Agency, we can administer multiple random selection testing with strict DOT/federal adherence to meet each jurisdictional requirement.

We provide DOT Testing for the following agencies

  • FMCSA  – Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
  • USCG – United State Coast Guard
  • FAA – Federal Aviation Administration
  • FRA – Federal Railroad Administration
  • FTA – Federal Transit Administration
