What should I know about drug testing and sample collection?

  • Consume 16 ounces of water before arriving for all drug testing
  • Be prepared to provide urine/blood/hair/etc. samples as needed
  • Guidelines for many urine tests require procedures to ensure authenticity

Q:  What kind of identification do I need?
A:  You need some type of photo ID — a  driver’s license, passport, or employee ID card that has your picture on it.

Q:  What if I don’t have any ID with me?
A:  We will ask your employer to identify you.

Q:  What if I can’t urinate?
A:  DOT rules specify we can give you up to 40 ounces of water and three hours to provide a specimen. You will only be able to leave the testing facility if you have given a specimen, or 3 hours have elapsed, whichever comes first.

Q:  What if I can’t urinate even after 3 hours and 40 ounces of water.
A:  It is considered a “refusal to test.”

Q:  How soon will results be available?
A:  Results are usually available within 24 to 48 hours.

Q:  Why do some employers want hair tests?
A:  Because a hair specimen can show drug use for the past 90 days. Urine only goes back 3 days.

Q:  What if I’m bald?
A:  The lab can test hair from any part of your body.

Q:  How much hair will you take?
A:  Enough to amount to an inch and a half strand.

Q:  Will you cut it or pull it from the root?
A:  We will snip it at the root. We never pull the hair out.

What should I know about CDL medical exams?

**Drivers need to be prepared to undergo a thorough and objective medical examination that meets all PA DOT requirements

Q: Do you need my old medical card?
A: No, we don’t need your old medical card in order to do your CDL examination.

Q: I already have a valid DOT medical card. Why does my new employer want me to get another one?
A: Many employers want their new hires to obtain a medical card from a physician they typically use.

Q. Do I have to put my social security number on this DOT medical long form?
A: No, the DOT does not need your social security number. It does need your date of birth.

Q: Will you give me a copy of my long form (the CDL physical examination form)?
A: Yes, if you have paid for the CDL exam yourself. If your employer paid for the examination, you can obtain a copy of the long form from them.

Q: Why do I have to give a urine sample for a CDL medical exam?
A: The DOT requires a screening test for diabetes by checking for sugar in your urine.

Q: What happens if you find sugar in my urine?
A: We will issue you a temporary medical card and refer you to your diabetes doctor for treatment before we convert your temporary card to a regular medical card.

Q: Can I qualify for a DOT medical card if I take insulin for diabetes?
A: Yes, but only if you have a DOT waiver, which you would obtain from the DOT. Without a waiver, taking insulin would be an automatic disqualifier.

Q: Do I need to bring my glasses?
A: Yes, if you need your glasses for driving you must bring them to your exam.

Q:        Can I have copies of all my test results?
