Keeping you compliant on drug testing
November 19, 2018

DOT drug and alcohol testing is the law for commercial drivers – even for owner-operators. The problem is how do you select yourself for a random drug test?
Consortium Management Co. Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of OOIDA, was established to help eliminate the hassle and confusion of mandatory drug and alcohol testing. It is a simple program available for $125 to $150 for members depending on the services you need. That is far less expensive than any other consortium available to truckers.
Among the program’s benefits are random testing, educational requirements, semiannual summaries and complete record keeping. All random tests are covered by your consortium enrollment fee. Three reasonable suspicion tests (if you have a driver working for you and suspect them of drug or alcohol use) are included at no charge, as well. Post-accident, pre-employment, return-to-duty or follow-up drug screens also are available for only $65 per test.
More information about the program is available by calling 800-288-3784.
