FAQ - What if we decide to make a current employee a CDL driver..?

Question

What if we decide to make a current employee a CDL driver, must we conduct a DOT "pre-employment" drug screen??

Answer:

Yes, as far as the DOT is concerned it does not matter how long the employee "worked" for you. They specify that the driver must pass a DOT pre-employment drug test before you allow them to operate a commercial vehicle requiring a CDL to operate for you.
