DOT random not yet driving and no CDL/CLP

Post by forego11 » Tue Jan 19, 2021 6:17 pm

Received a DOT drug test result positive for amphetamine without a valid prescription. Donor was picked through a consortium for a random. After speaking with company found out donor currently does just general labor but is expected to drive a dump truck within 6 month. Has medical card but no CDL or CLP. I don't feel he should have been tested as a DOT random. How should I proceed in advising the company?

Review it like a DOT test. You could reach out to the employer re: DOT v. non DOT, but it sounds like they've already decided they want this to be a DOT test, and it's their decision.

Thank you for the answer. I find it odd that I am unable to put it in the clearinghouse as it requires his CDL number of which he has none.
