As an industry leader in the substance abuse testing arena, Mobile Medical Corporation (MMC), a Pittsburgh based drug testing firm receives many questions on substance abuse testing daily. One of the topics that we are asked about often is Department of Transportation (DOT) Drug Testing.

A recent question from a manager at a transportation firm in New York City asked, "What drugs are tested for in a DOT program?"

According to The Department of Transportation's (DOT) rule, 49 CFR Part 40 - Subsection § 40.85

The following five drugs or classes of drugs are tested for in a DOT drug test.

  1. Marijuana metabolites.
  2. Cocaine metabolites.
  3. Amphetamines.
  4. Opiate metabolites.
  5. Phencyclidine (PCP).

Check back often as there are changes on the horizon coming to DOT drug testing regulations.
