Clearinghouse Registration

Promote safety: Clearinghouse grants access to CDL driver records.

The Clearinghouse is a secure online database that provides access to CDL drivers' drug and alcohol testing records for federal and state agencies, testing laboratories, state DOTs, state troopers, and trucking companies. It plays a vital role in promoting safety within the industry.

Who is required to be part of the Clearinghouse?

  1. Drivers holding a commercial driver's license (CDL) or commercial learner's permit (CLP).
  2. Employers of CDL drivers operating commercial motor vehicles (CMVs).
  3. Consortia/third-party administrators (C/TPAs).
  4. Medical review officers (MROs).
  5. Substance Abuse Professionals (SAPs).

The Clearinghouse final rule mandates the following:

  1. Employers must query the Clearinghouse for drug and alcohol violations of current and prospective employees before allowing them to operate a CMV on public roads.
  2. Employers must annually query the Clearinghouse for each employed driver.

The Clearinghouse provides FMCSA and employers with essential tools to identify drivers prohibited from operating a CMV due to DOT drug and alcohol program violations. It ensures these drivers receive the necessary evaluation and treatment before resuming CMV operations. The Clearinghouse also aids in identifying drivers who fail to disclose their program violations to subsequent employers as required by regulations. Records of drug and alcohol program violations are retained in the Clearinghouse for five years or until the driver completes the return-to-duty process, whichever is later.
