As you know, the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse is a secure online database containing records of drug and alcohol violations, including positive drug or alcohol test results and test refusals of anybody who holds a commercial driver’s license (CDL) or a commercial learner’s permit (CLP). When a driver completes the return-to-duty (RTD) process and follow-up testing plan, this information is also recorded in the Clearinghouse.
Drivers are not required to register for the Clearinghouse. However, a driver will need to be registered to provide electronic consent in the Clearinghouse if a prospective or current employer needs to conduct a full query of the driver’s Clearinghouse record, including all pre-employment queries. Once registered, drivers can view their driver record and identify a substance abuse professional (SAP) so the SAP may enter specific information regarding the driver’s return-to-duty (RTD) activities.
Registration is available here.
