2019 DOT Random Testing Rates

2019 DOT Random Testing Rates


(As required by 49 CFR Part 40)

Schedule a Drug Test provides DOT random drug testing and alcohol testing if required by your specific DOT Agency.  We also offer consortium and third party administrator (C/TPA) services which manages the entire DOT approved Consortium for DOT regulated companies and DOT covered “safety sensitive” employees.

The Department Of Transportation consortium complies with all requirements of DOT 49 CFR Part 40 which mandates that all “safety sensitive” employees be enrolled in a random drug and alcohol testing program.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) has strict regulations requiring regulated companies and independent operators (CDL License Holders) be a member of a DOT drug and alcohol Consortium and failure to comply with these regulations can result in significant fines and other DOT sanctions. 

What is DOT random drug testing?

The Department of Transportation requires that all “covered” individuals be actively enrolled in a random drug/alcohol testing pool commonly refereed to as a consortium.  Our Consortium ensures compliance with each specific DOT modal regulations and customer service is our number one priority.  Our customer service representatives and our DOT specialist are committed to serving our DOT consortium members in need of a pre-employment drug test, random drug test or breath alcohol test.

A DOT drug test is a 5 panel urine test and all DOT drug tests require a Federal Chain of Custody form, this is a special 5 page form which must be used when a DOT drug test is administered.  Schedule a Drug Test provides all members of our DOT consortium a package consisting of Federal Chain of Custody Forms to be used when taking a DOT drug test, a welcome letter and certificate of enrollment at no additional cost.
