to Stay DOT Complaint

Network Provider




For owner-operators two important steps must be taken to comply with the DOT FMCSA regulations for drug and alcohol testing:

  • A pre-Employment drug test with a negative result must be completed before operating a DOT covered commercial motor vehicle (CMV).
  • You must enroll into a random testing consortium. Owner-operators are not permitted to manage random testing themselves.

The Drug Testing Services can assist owner operators in all areas of the United States, for immediate compliance with DOT & FMCSA regulations for drug and alcohol testing, call The Drug Testing Services.

You need to contact SAP, Now what is SAP?

The Department Of Transportation Substance Abuse Professional (DOT SAP) is a person who evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol program regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.

As an SAP you represent the major decision point (and in some cases the only decision point) an employer may have in choosing whether or not to place an employee behind the steering wheel of a school bus, in the cockpit of a plane, at the helm of an oil tanker, at the throttle of a train, in the engineer's compartment of a subway car, or at the emergency control valves of a natural gas pipeline. Your responsibility to the public is enormous!

As an SAP you are an advocate for neither the employer nor the employee. Your function is to protect the public interest in safety by professionally evaluating the employee and recommending appropriate education and/or treatment, follow-up tests, and aftercare.

With the above in mind, it is important for SAPs to fully understand and comply with the regulations. Therefore, the SAP should be familiar with 49 CFR Part 40 while paying particular attention to the following Subparts:

  • Subpart O - Substance Abuse Professional and Return-to-Duty Process
  • Subpart P- Confidentiality and Release of Information
  • Subpart Q- Roles and Responsibilities of Service Agents
  • Subpart R - Public Interest Exclusions
  • Appendix E to Part 40 - SAP equivalency Requirements for Certification Organizations
