What is a DOT drug test?

A DOT drug test is a drug test required by the Department of Transportation for safety-sensitive employees. This test screens for a variety of substances, including marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, methamphetamine, opioids, and phencyclidine (PCP). Employees who fail a DOT drug test may face consequences such as suspension or termination from their job and particularly removal from a DOT safety sensitive position. See more at:
