Online Training Services Q: Who needs to be in a DOT drug and alcohol testing program?
A: Anyone who holds Commercial Driver's License (CDL) or CDL Learners Permit, and operate a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) in any state.
A CMV is defined as a vehicle:
- With a gross vehicle weight rating or gross combination weight rating of 26,001 or more lbs; or
- With the capacity to carry 16 or more passengers (including the driver)
If you have a person who falls into either category then you need to make sure that you have a negative pre-employment drug screen on file for that person before you allow them to drive for you.
Medical Enterprises can also help you set up
a non-DOT drug and alcohol testing program for your people who drive but do not operate a vehicle in the above categories.
