Drug & Alcohol Testing for Federal DOT Compliance
To remain DOT-compliant under federal requirements, companies and other entities that come under the security umbrella must undertake thorough drug and alcohol testing, including random testing, for-cause testing, post-accident testing, and more.
Our certified collectors are thoroughly trained in the federal DOT testing methods, including the use of the EBT and all breath/breathalyzer testing protocols.
We utilize the federally authorized Lifeloc Phoenix® 6.0 Portable Breath Alcohol Testing Equipment and provide you with the Department of Transportation’s three-part Breath Alcohol Testing form (DOT). Our staff takes the utmost care in sample separation and contamination prevention so that you can be confident that the findings of your test are accurate and trustworthy. Above all, we aim to make your federal DOT testing services as fast, pleasant, and affordable as possible.

WHO IS REQUIRED TO UNDERGO FEDERAL DOT TESTING?
Federal DOT drug and alcohol testing are mandatory for all workers that fall under the six safety-sensitive agencies outlined by DOT.
These agencies include:
● Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)
● Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
● Federal Transit Administration (FTA)
● Federal Railroad Administration (FRA)
● United States Coast Guard (USCG)
● Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA)
Many subject to federal DOT testing include employees of private businesses, governments, and other organizations who have a commercial driver’s license (CDL) or perform transportation services as part of their job. This can include for-hire motor carriers, private motor carriers, commercial vehicle owners and/or leasers, churches, civic groups, or anybody who utilizes a commercial vehicle.
WHEN IS FEDERAL DOT TESTING NEEDED?
A variety of situations require Federal DOT drug and alcohol testing, such as following an accident involving one of your employees (post-accident), when you have reason to believe an employee is abusing drugs or alcohol (reasonable suspicion), and when an employee goes back to work after failing a DOT drug or alcohol test (return-to-duty/follow-up testing). Most companies are also required by the federal DOT to undertake random drug and alcohol testing.
