Buzzkill: Inside FMCSA’s Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse

As any trucker knows, truck driving is a huge responsibility that – when mixed with drugs or alcohol – can be deadly. On this episode of BossCast, Carlin and Isela take a deeper dive into the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse, a federal database where drivers with CDLs have to register so that officials and employers can see any drug or alcohol violations.

We’re in year one of a three-year transition into the Clearinghouse – a time-consuming process but one that will result in an easier, faster program that keeps drivers and our roads safe… or does it? Listen to this episode to find out what that means for you as a driver, what happens if you get a mark on your record and what drug regulations look like in states with looser restrictions.
