May a road test be given before a pre-employment drug test?
Yes. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, an employer may administer a road test to driver-applicants subject to Part 382 without first testing them for controlled substances. However, an employer may not use driver-applicants as a current company or lease driver without first obtaining a verified negative test result. A motor carrier must obtain a verified negative controlled substance test result prior to dispatching drivers on their first trip.
