The Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse arrives in less than six months. Drivers are starting to ask questions, so it’s time to help them prepare.

FMCSA regulations require all motor carriers to inform their CDL drivers about the information that will be reported to the Clearinghouse, including any DOT drug or alcohol testing violations.

If you have them sign and date the form at the bottom and add it to their drug testing file, you’ll have documentation showing you educated your drivers about how the Clearinghouse will affect them.
