Do we need a DOT pre-employment test result before performing a driver’s road test?
A road test may be given to CDL drivers before receiving DOT pre-employment drug test results, according to regulatory guidance provided by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. However, a motor carrier must obtain a verified negative drug test result prior to dispatching drivers on their first trip.
