    CSAT – Controlled Substance and Alcohol Testing

    In order to obtain a Motor Carrier Permit (MCP), compliance with the Controlled Substance and Alcohol Testing program (CSAT) is required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. As an employer, it is imperative that you identify drivers who use drugs or alcohol while on the job.  It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that no employee operates a motor vehicle until they have successfully completed a rehabilitation and return-to-duty program. It is mandatory that all owner-operators comply with the CSAT.

    The test requires a urine sample for testing drugs as well as a breath test for alcohol.

    A business can obtain a test if:

    – pre-employment testing;

    – reasonable suspicion testing;

    – post-accident testing;

    – random testing.

    If a motor vehicle operator violates these regulations, it is a mandatory requirement for the operator to complete a return-to-duty program before they return to operate a commercial vehicle. The operator in violation must follow-up with testing for at least a year.

    If the operator refuses to take a CSAT test, they automatically test positive.

    Controlled substances include marijuana, amphetamines, cocaine, opiates and PCP (Phencyclidine). Consuming alcohol while or within a 4-hour time span prior to driving a commercial vehicle.
