New Resource Outlines Return-to-Duty Process for CDL Drivers.
June 14, 2023
A driver with a drug and alcohol program violation is prohibited from performing safety-sensitive functions, including operating a commercial motor vehicle, for any DOT-regulated employer until the return-to-duty process is complete. Beginning November 18, 2024, drivers with a “prohibited” status in FMCSA’s Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse will also lose or be denied their state-issued commercial driving privileges. FMCSA recently added a new resource to the Clearinghouse Learning Center that outlines the return-to-duty process that drivers with a “prohibited” status must complete so they can get their status back to “not prohibited.” For more information about the return-to-duty process, visit the Clearinghouse Learning Center or frequently asked questions.
