By now you all should have received information regarding the “mandatory” registration for Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse with USDOT. If your company is required to enroll drivers in a random drug and alcohol program (you operate vehicles with a GVW of 26,001 or more or a passenger vehicle 16+ passengers) then you must enroll in this clearinghouse by January 6th.
Also, each of your drivers who are under the DOT Random Drug & Alcohol program must also register individually.
After January 6th, 2020, we will need to run an inquiry in this clearinghouse for all “new hires” as part of their pre-employment process with your company. Also for current drivers we will need to also run an annual inquiry which we can coordinate with their annual abstracts/driver annual reviews.
TRANS-COM is currently trying to see if there is any way we can connect to your accounts so we can offer to run these inquiries for you. We have not been able to get a response back as of yet, but we’ll keep you posted. From what we currently understand they must be run for each driver under each USDOT profile.
We will keep you up to date with any further information we receive.
