Alcohol and drug rules

Alcohol and drug rules

The FMCSA regulations require alcohol and drug testing of drivers, who are required to have a CDL. The U.S. DOT rules include procedures for urine drug testing and breath alcohol testing. Urine drug testing rules were first issued in December 1989. In 1994, the rules were amended to add breath alcohol testing procedures.
