Testing Procedures





Random Testing  
Owner Operator Random Selection is accomplished on a Quarterly Year Basis. Any Owner Operator selected for a random drug or alcohol test will be notified by telephone and/or certified letter. Upon notification of a random test, the Owner Operator must proceed immediately to the testing location.

Random Testing will be done either at the LWD collection facility or at a LWD pre-selected clinic. We will make every effort to assign a clinic that is within a ten mile radius of the Owner Operator's home address or where their commercial vehicle is placed.

 
  Post Accident Testing
 
  LWD offers Post Accident testing to any Owner Operator involved in an accident while operating their commercial vehicle. A DOT Post Accident test is required under accident conditions below.

Fees for a DOT Post Accident Drug and Alcohol test are billed separately and must be paid upon receipt of invoice.
