Question: Is a motor carrier required to administer a DOT pre-employment drug test on a driver that received a verified negative test result on the initial pre-employment drug test, but was not placed into the motor carrier’s DOT random testing pool and more than 30 days has elapsed since the date of the first test?

Yes, because the driver was not covered in a DOT random testing pool for more than 30 days, the motor carrier must administer another DOT pre-employment drug test on the driver and receive a verified negative result from the MRO before allowing the driver to operate a commercial motor vehicle that requires a CDL. Please see § 382.301 (b) (1) and § 382.301 Question 2
