Random Drug &
Alcohol program

Drug and Alcohol Consortium

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), along with the Department of Transportation (DOT), require that drivers with a commercial license (CDL) must be enrolled in a drug and alcohol consortium. Individuals randomly selected by the program each quarter must complete mandatory testing.

What is Random Drug & Alcohol Testing?

Random Drug & Alcohol Testing is a DOT requirement that is mandatory for all CDL drivers operating trucks over 26,000 lbs. The purpose of Random Testing is to make sure that drivers are not abusing drugs and/or alcohol while on duty.

What is a Consortium?

Many times when you hear about Random Testing, the term “Consortium” comes up. So what is a Consortium? Random Testing works by selecting drivers from a certain group. This group of all drivers is called a Consortium, sometimes referred to as random pool.
