About Federal DOT Alcohol Testing Regulations

Per the Department of Transportation (DOT) 49 CFR Part 40 (Drug and Alcohol Regulations), an evidential breath testing device (EBT) must be approved by the NHTSA for the use of DOT alcohol testing. The EBT alcohol testing machine must be operated by a certified breath alcohol technician (BAT).

A DOT breath alcohol test is considered to be positive under any of the following situations:

  • A confirmation result of 0.04 or greater
  • Refusal to complete and sign the breath alcohol testing form
  • Refusal to provide breath
  • Refusal to provide an adequate amount of breath
  • Refusal to otherwise cooperate with the testing process

Certified DOT Drug Testing

DOT Drug Testing Services

Each state has specific requirements for DOT drug testing. The drug testing regulations vary according to the actual employer- be it the state government or private company - but all safety-sensitive employees and employers within the six agencies under the DOT umbrella (FMCSA, FAA, FTA, PHMSA, USCG, FRA) must have proof that they are complying with a drug and alcohol screening program .

Mobile DOT Drug Testing

Fastest Labs provides the most comprehensive and accurate drug and alcohol testing service in the industry. One of our specialties is on-site DOT testing using our mobile labs. Our DOT services also include DOT consortiums and recurring testing for commercial drivers and employers required to comply with US Department of Transportation (DOT) drug testing regulations.


Types of DOT Alcohol Breath Testing

Because alcohol is a legal substance, alcohol testing is authorized only during, just before, or just after the employee performs safety-sensitive functions. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the following alcohol tests are required:

  • Post-accident - conducted after accidents on drivers whose performance could have contributed to the accident (as determined by a citation for a moving traffic violation) and for all fatal accidents even if the driver is not cited for a moving traffic violation.
  • Reasonable suspicion - conducted when a trained supervisor or company official observes behavior or appearance that is characteristic of alcohol misuse.
  • Random - conducted on a random unannounced basis just before, during, or just after performance of safety-sensitive functions.
  • Return-to-duty and follow-up - conducted when an individual who has violated the prohibited alcohol conduct standards returns to performing safety-sensitive duties. Follow-up tests are unannounced. At least 6 tests must be conducted in the first 12 months after a driver returns to duty. Follow-up testing may be extended for up to 60 months following return to duty.
