CDL Drug Testing - DOT- Results in 3-5 Business Days

DOT stands for Department of Transportation, and a DOT drug test is a drug and alcohol test that is required by the DOT for certain safety-sensitive positions in the transportation industry. This includes positions such as commercial drivers, pilots, train engineers, and more.

A DOT drug test typically screens for five specific categories of drugs: marijuana, cocaine, opiates, amphetamines, and phencyclidine (PCP). In addition, a DOT drug test also screens for alcohol use. The test is typically done through a urine sample, although other types of samples, such as saliva or hair, may also be used.

The DOT has specific guidelines and regulations for how these drug tests must be conducted, including the qualifications of the testing facility and the procedures for collecting and analyzing the samples. Employers in the transportation industry must comply with these guidelines in order to ensure the safety of their employees and the public.

DOT Drug Testing: After January 1, 2018 – Still a 5-Panel

The DOT testing at HHS-certified laboratories is a 5-panel drug test regimen.  As of January 1, 2018, the ‘Opiates’ category was renamed ‘Opioids’:

  • Marijuana (THC)
  • Cocaine
  • Amphetamines
  • Opioids
  • Phencyclidine (PCP)

Under ‘Opioids’, previously ‘Opiates’, DOT testing will continue to include confirmatory testing, when appropriate, for Codeine, Morphine, and 6-AM (heroin).  We added initial and confirmatory testing for the semi-synthetic opioids Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, Oxycodone, and Oxymorphone to this Opioids group.  Some brand names for the semi-synthetic opioids include OxyContin®, Percodan®, Percocet®, Vicodin®, Lortab®, Norco®, Dilaudid®, Exalgo®.

Under Amphetamines, DOT testing includes confirmatory testing, when appropriate, for Amphetamine, Methamphetamine, MDMA, and MDA.  To this Amphetamines group, we added initial testing for MDA and removed testing for MDEA.

Since January 1st, we have required confirmation testing for 14 drugs under a 5‑panel test.  Broken out, here is what DOT drug testing looks like:

  • Marijuana (THC)
  • Cocaine
  • Amphetamine, Methamphetamine, MDMA, MDA
