The US Department of Transportation (DOT) requires companies employing individuals who hold commercial driver licenses (CDLs) to perform random, pre-employment, post-accident, reasonable suspicion, and return-to-duty drug and alcohol tests. Under 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 40, any individual who tests positive for drugs or alcohol must be referred to a qualified SAP who will provide a comprehensive, face-to-face assessment and clinical evaluation and recommend a course of treatment. These regulations apply to FAA, FMCSA, FRA, FTA, RSPA, and USCG. The US Department of Transportation (DOT) requires specialized training for Substance Abuse Professionals (SAPs) conducting DOT-compliant substance evaluations for employees in safety-sensitive duties. In addition to substance abuse certification, DOT SAPs must complete 12 hours of specialized training every three years and pass a national exam specific to DOT guidelines.
