Compliance is Not an Option

Failure to adhere to DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing regulations may leave your business in violation of 49 CFR Part 40 of the US DOT procedures for transportation rules and regulations. Companies caught without a compliance program — or with a program that is non-compliant will face fines and the possibility of being pulled off the road immediately.

With PLS, you will have everything that you need to be DOT compliant when it comes to your drug and alcohol testing. Our programs have passed numerous DOT audits.

*Post Accident/Random Testing Cab Kits for after-hours testing and/or emergency testing situations (Not Required)

Our “DOT Cab Kits” are sealed collection kits containing the following:

  • D.O.T.  CCF (Chain and Control Form)

For Your Convenience

Things don’t always work…. as a result, we continue to provide DOT Driver Kits to our employers.  Technical difficulties with E-forms and digital collection processes can keep a driver from completing his or her random testing requirement.  If a collection site cannot perform a digital collection, It is a great feeling when your driver can provide the facility  with a hard copy Custody and Control Form so that the drug test can be completed.

Random drug tests are typically scheduled using DOT approved electronic forms (e-forms) at a pre-approved facility. A hard copy of the DOT CCF is provided in the event the collection site is unable to access the online system for any reason and is forced to turn the employee away WITHOUT an actual paper CCF. It is provided for convenience purposes only and is not a requirement. All “DOT Driver Kits” are kept in the vehicle(s) at all times. They are provided for the sole purpose of random drug testing.

Post Accident Testing Services

Post Accident After Hours Drug Testing Occurs at the cost of the employer and is based on the rate set by the local area facility chosen for the collection and testing service. Collection fees for the drug test and breath alcohol test (BAT) performed at any facility other than Personal Lab Service’s office will incur the fee(s) charged by that facility. Personal Lab Services does not set nor control the cost of “Out-Of Area” or “Third-Party” drug testing services.
