Important Notice: FMCSA Lowers Drug Test Random Selection Percentage in 2016.
On December 21, 2015 The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) lowered the annual random Drug Test selection rate for CDL holders to 25% from the prior 50% requirement. The decision was made by FMCSA after the industry demonstrated three (3) consecutive years of positive drug test rates below one (1) percent. FMCSA was the only DOT mode testing at 50% until the recent decision. All other DOT modes have been testing at the 25% rate for the past several years. Alcohol Test selection rate will remain at ten (10) percent.
Companies can still elect to test at higher percentages but the minimum requirement is now 25%. Please contact a Fleet Screen rep if you elect to have your random selection rate set at a percentage higher than 25% per year.
