As Hire Image previously reported, the FMCSA Clearinghouse was launched on January 6, 2020, with the goal of creating an online database of drug and alcohol testing violations and return-to-duty information for CDL drivers that could be stored and searched. The goal of the Clearinghouse was to help create safer roadways for everyone by keeping all of this information in one searchable database, which would allow employers to quickly check this information for their fleet of drivers.
Beginning January 6, 2023, a pre-employment query of the Clearinghouse will satisfy the requirement to investigate a prospective CDL driver’s previous drug and alcohol program violations
Hire Image can assist your company in obtaining these records – both from the Clearinghouse and directly from past employers. Contact us for more information.
