Our Random Drug Testing cost to you is $52.50 per DOT Drug Test and $30 per DOT Alcohol Test if conducted at our office. These tests also include MRO Review. To better serve your company, we offer over 3,000 collection sites nationwide at no additional costs. There may be additional fees for on-site collections, or drug screens that are collected at sites not in our network. Call (800) 373-2650, or email us today for more information. If you want us to include you or your organization in our computer-based Program Management System, which will perform your required Random Selections, the cost is only $99 per year. This charge is per company or owner operator.

DOT BAT (Breath Alcohol Test) if conducted at our office the cost is $30 each test. If done away from our office, you pay the clinic for the cost of test. If you prefer, we can pay the clinic and bill back to you the test cost plus a $3 administration fee. And $3.50 per each MVR (Plus State Charge)
There are three general ways in which you can run your DOT drug and alcohol testing program:
Option 1: Administer the program internally. You would have on your own staff urine specimen collectors and Screening Test Technicians (STTs) / BATs, MROs, and Substance Abuse Professionals (SAPs) and support staff to run the program. The testing laboratory would be the only part of your program outside your own organization.
Option 2: Outsource some of the program functions to service agents. For example, you could have your own MRO and SAP but contract with urine specimen collectors and STTs / BATs to perform the collections, while keeping a support staff to run the program.
Option 3: Outsource all of the program’s functions to a vendor, called a “consortium” or a “third-party administrator” (C/TPA), with only a DER and the DER’s support staff, if any, remaining in-house.
NOTE: As an owner-operator in the motor carrier industry, FMCSA regulations require you to belong to a C/TPA to ensure your compliance with random testing.

EMPLOYMENT SCREENING SOLUTIONS
The United States Congress recognized the need for a drug and alcohol free transportation industry, and in 1991 passed the Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act, requiring DOT agencies to implement drug and alcohol testing of safety-sensitive transportation employees. 49 CFR Part 40, or Part 40 as we call it, is a DOT-wide regulation that states how to conduct testing and how to return employees to safety-sensitive duties after they violate a DOT drug and alcohol regulation. Part 40 applies to all DOT-required testing, regardless of mode of transportation. For example, whether you are an airline employee covered by FAA rules or a trucking company driver covered by FMCSA rules, Part 40 procedures for collecting and testing specimens and reporting of test results apply to you. Each DOT Agency-specific regulation spells out who is subject to testing, when and in what situations for a particular transportation industry.
Since the early 1990s, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and its predecessor agency has defined drug and alcohol testing rules and regulations for employees who drive commercial trucks and buses that require a commercial driver's license (CDL). These regulations identify who is subject to testing, when they are tested and in what situations. The regulations also impose privacy protections and restrictions on employers and service agents against the use and release of sensitive drug and alcohol testing information. The FMCSA controlled substances and alcohol use and testing regulations can be found at 49 CFR Part 382.
