This seminar provides an overview of who needs to register for the FMCSA Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse, how to conduct a query, and report driver violations. If your business has one or more employees with a CDL, you are required to participate in the Clearinghouse. Non-compliance could result in a fine of up to $5833.
The FMCSA reported more than 45,000 drivers lost their jobs in 2020 due to drug and alcohol violations. However, approximately 34,000 of those drivers have not yet completed the return-to-work program, suggesting they left their jobs for good. According to the U.S. DOT, there are 5,174,170 truck drivers under FMCSA authority. While using the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse is mandatory for all employers of CDL drivers, the 56,000 violations recorded in 2020 represents just 1.1 percent of the available driver pool nationwide. Marketers who have not signed up with the Clearinghouse should do so immediately.
