DOT Employers & Owner Operators

Random drug testing programs are required for employers regulated by the United Stated Department of Transportation (DOT). If you are an owner operator, you are required to be enrolled into a consortium random drug testing program. Smaller DOT regulated employers may also elect to enroll into a consortium random drug testing program for easy compliance. Larger DOT regulated employers typically request a stand-alone DOT random testing program.
