Registering for the Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse
    10/16/2019

    After years in development, the FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse is up and running.  The Clearinghouse will track the results of drug and alcohol tests for all commercial drivers.  

    Currently, Motor Carriers are required to perform Former Employer Background Inquiries (including drug and alcohol history) within 30 days of hiring a Commercial Driver.  Essentially, as long as a new hire passes a pre-employment drug screening, they can begin driving (performing Safety Sensitive Functions) immediately.

    With the Clearinghouse, potential employers need to have the Full Query back, and in-hand, before a new driver can perform safety sensitive functions (i.e. drive).

    Beginning on January 6, 2020, all pre-employment queries will need to go through the Clearinghouse.  Remember, Motor Carriers are required to register, drivers are not.  However, if a driver wishes to apply to a new employer, is requested to do so by their current Motor Carrier, or if they want to view their own Clearinghouse record, they will need to register online.

    The FMCSA released the following step-by-step guides for registering:
