Stand Against Impaired Driving: Query the Clearinghouse
Together with our partners in the industry, FMCSA is working to increase the number of employers of CDL drivers registered for and querying the Clearinghouse, as required by Federal regulations. By helping ensure that your peers, clients, members, and other stakeholders are educated about their Clearinghouse requirements, you are helping to prevent impaired driving of CMVs, and helping to make our Nation’s roads safer for everyone. FMCSA partners can download materials to help educate stakeholders about their requirements under the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse at https://clearinghouse.fmcsa.dot.gov/Resource/Page/Stand-Against-Impaired-Driving.
