How Long After Notification Does a Driver have to Proceed for a Random Drug Test?

May 19, 2021

Once an employer notifies a driver that he/she has been selected for a random drug or alcohol test the driver must proceed to the test site immediately.  This means that all of the driver’s actions, after notification, lead to an immediate specimen collection.  The time the driver spends traveling to and from the collection site, and all time associated with providing the specimen, must be recorded as on-duty time for purposes of compliance with the hours of service rules.
