FMCSA has recently updated the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse to allow employers to link their Clearinghouse accounts with their FMCSA Portal accounts. This will enable employers to associate Clearinghouse activity (reporting violations, conducting queries, purchasing query plans, and designating consortia/third-party administrators (C/TPAs)) with a specified USDOT Number in their Portal account.
To complete this process, employers must enter their FMCSA Portal User ID and password. Any employer having trouble accessing their Portal account should contact the FMCSA Portal Registration Call Center at 800-724-2811 (hours are Monday thru Friday, 8:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. ET).
Employers with multiple USDOT Numbers in their Portal account will need to ensure they have the correct Clearinghouse Portal user role for each USDOT Number. For more information, see the Clearinghouse Portal User Roles job aid.
To add a USDOT Number (or USDOT Numbers) to a Clearinghouse employer account:
1. Log in to the Clearinghouse.
2. Go to My Dashboard > My Profile.
3. Click the button that says Add USDOT# at the top of the My Employer Profile screen.
4. Follow the instructions provided by the Clearinghouse.
Don’t have an FMCSA Portal account?
Each Clearinghouse user whose company has a USDOT Number should have their own personal FMCSA Portal Account. To request an account, visit the FMCSA Portal page.
