What is a FMCSA Clearinghouse?

The drug and alcohol clearinghouse is a secure online database used by employers to conduct searches about drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMV). A DOT or FMCSA clearinghouse query is a search of the database to help determine if a driver has a report of drug or alcohol abuse in the workplace.

Essential in the transportation industry, employers can easily access information about their drivers’ drug and alcohol testing history and identify alleged lapses in the program. This helps ensure that current and new employees with violations cannot carry out safety-sensitive activities.

Annual FMCSA Drug And Alcohol Clearinghouse

An annual DOT drug & alcohol clearinghouse query is a request for all drivers who work for the company. This query aims to determine if there was a violation by a positive drug and alcohol test result which the employee did not disclose.

Motor carrier employers of CDL drivers are required to conduct an annual Dot drug & alcohol clearinghouse query on all drivers at least once every year per § 382.701. Failure to perform the required act could result in hefty fines due to non-compliance.

FMCSA Clearinghouse Query Types

There are two forms of queries, limited queries and full queries. A query may reveal private information about a registered driver. Therefore, every clearinghouse query requires a driver’s consent, depending upon the nature of a query. A consent form may be electronically signed within the clearinghouse system.
