What does the doctors test for in the urine drug test. Just narcotics or other such as medical drugs.

drewman in Laguna Hills, California said: Just keep your spirits up and be patient. Finding a job these days can take a long time and employers are being very, very picky with the local driving jobs. Most don't want no felonies while others are okay as long as it's been 5 years or more or whatever. My point to others out there who are in the same boat is that there are other jobs besides OTR that do not, don't care, or even never heard of DAC. I know a few tanker yanker companies that do not use DAC, they are just not hiring right now. All of the cement hauling and recycling companies around here also do not use DAC but they as well are not hiring either at this time. What I do know is that if you are a CDL holder with a good driving record and at least a descent background, then there is a job around here for you even if you have to start out by driving a taxi. I failed once and I still found THREE commercial driving jobs after the fact. One of them was even an OTR job. So don't give up. Also.....a lot of local jobs pay a heck of a lot more than most long haul jobs and you are home everynight.

thanks you made me wake up after 13years of a clean rec i cant stop

Even if you are taking legal drugs..I highly doubt
any company would hire you, they are going to say
that you are a high risk...you can always call
any company that provides CDL training, and
ask them, they can tell you for sure...

Expect the worse...

This sounds like nothing more then abuse of dac reporting...

It sounds like these days that trucking compaines want
perfect soldiers, if not, then they will fire you for
being imperfect, and submit it to dac in their own words.

If what you say is true, and you just had a drug test two
weeks prior, and there was no issues..there would have been
no reason for a random, as they do cost money also...

I suggest at this point is to consult an attorney, as
the company has now black-balled you, and ruined your reputation.

The company obviously did not want to put you on the road
with high blood pressure problems as it would have been
a high risk to them, so they come up with BS, terminate you,
and place it on your dac...

I have recently seen on this forum so many dac abuses by
trucking compaines that it is not funny...one little dac
infraction can get you fired, and you will not be able
to find work driving a truck.

You are very right John and the problem is that I think that these people are doing these things because they are vindictive and because they can. I've been fighting and fighting and frankly I'm tired so i'm looking to try and get back in school. I'm appling for a job @ a warehouse loading trucks. I really don't care anymore. I like driving but this stuff is crazy. I don't know how many timess you have to beat a company and prove them wrong to get your point across.

Steven in Brooklyn, New York said: I recently was hired by a company. I had to travel half way across the country to do thier orientation. To keep it short I came up possitive for marajuana. I have been a driver for 5 years pulling tanker and mostly hazardous material. I have been drug screened on average twice a year. Prior to truck driving I have been tested on average once a year all my adult life. I have never failed a drug in my life until then. Honestly I don't know how the result came back positive. I can't say I have never done marjuana, however, I had not done any since I started driving back in 2001. The company said they could offer me a rehab program and I was offended. I now have a failed screen showing up on my DAC report and am being black balled from every good job I try to get. I have no clue what I can do to fix this, and it is extremely frustrating that I can not get a good job. I am stuck working for small companies who don't check DAC. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

They should have offered the MRO( Medical Review Officer) phone number to you so you could discuss and/or dispute findings!

Im not worried about the job, as my father owns the trucking company, I just need to know if they will find out about the prescription as I am being prescribed oxycontin in NV. and Im trying to get my license in CA.

Thank you.

It depends on how it shows up on your criminal record. The Federal Motor Carrier Association regulates who a trucking company can or cannot hirer to drive, and the rules during the course of employment. There are only 2 major criminal issues that will prevent, by law, you from becoming a truck driver:

1.Distribution of, possession with intent to distribute, or importation of a controlled substance. (illegal drug)

2.The use of criminal force such as with a gun or knife.

If it shows up as just a possession 14 years ago. You maybe ok.

Here is what I would do if I came back positive when no drugs were used. I would go to a clinic where they use the most strict standards and give blood, urine and hair. From what I understand, if you used drugs several months ago, it will show up in the hair test. It's pretty much if any part of the hair was on your head when you used the drugs, it will show up. I would probably repeat the test at a second clinic and pay for all the tests. Next, I would take my results with the technicians and doctors written verification to the best attorney that I could find. I would take dead aim in court at the clinic and labs that botched the drug screen.

I would use my life savings to mount a counter attack to reclaim my life. I suspect that a jury will compensate you for the "accident". It is pure and simple and case of malpractice that ruined your life.

But that's just me.

I tried submitting a hair,blood sample at the time of my positive result in 2007. The FMCSA, DOT, AMMRO's will only accept urine samples. Once your sample comes back positive, even a false positive, their word stands. Their only responses are stated in the "Rules and Regulations" manuel. Their guidelines are like talking to the walls and that's the way they wrote it. If you can hire a lawyer, if you can't, like me, look for other driving jobs that don't require DOT inspections. Remember, your driving license is good, no moving violations, your DOT physical card is still good, Your MVR is still good. Just try not to waste your money on the SAP program, they offer no guarentees, just give them $300-$600 and still won't be able to find employment. If it's been within 1 year, and no drugs were involved, Call Labcorp and ask them to check your sample for DMSO, DIMETHYL SULFOXIDE. My call came a little late. Let me know how this turns out.

They don't get to decide if the hair sample is good, "the jury does". Again, I would spend my life savings on an attorney. The lab and clinic will be in court along with my evidence that I was clean. The evidence would be two urine samples, two hair samples and two blood samples each performed by separate labs. All of the samples would show no trace of drugs and they would be collected the day that you received the results. Don't worry about the cost of the attorney, the jury will award you attorneys fee's along with punitive damages.

It requires passion and anger which I would have if they gave me bad results that injured my reputation and my job.

you should be ok if hireright said they did not have any info on you an its not in there data base.

If you did the urine test and doctor says to you that there was sugar in your blood and that you are diabetic. The same thing happened to me twice and i went to re-test with another doctor who used sugar solutions to test if i was came to find out that i was not diabetic.I guess it was what i ate or drank that morning could have raised my blood sugar. I am not diabetic and it is not in my family. Do you guys think i can go apply for another OTR job with another company than going back to the first job that i was tested negative as to sugar?

I know for a 100,000,000,000% FACT (LET ME REPEAT!!!) FACT!!!! That you can have a false positive! While admitting that I did take oxycodone because of surgery where I had a plate and 7 screws (which I happened to be allergic to the screws), I NEVER in my LIFE have taken a barbituate!!! I tested positive for it. Granted this was luckily not a DOT test. But it definitely possible! I didn't and still really don't even know what a barbituate is. I know the only thing I took was oxycodone and tylenol. Not even another OTC medication! Just so NO-sayers will stop saying you're doing drugs when I know for a fact that you CAN have a false positive!!

Most companies that do backround checks go to a website named hireright. You can go to that website too and request a backround check on yourself.

There are boxes you can check to find out what other comapnies have said about you and also failed drug test. My spouse requested one on himself. The report you will receive in a few days through the mail is named a "DAC" report. If you failed a drug test it will stay on your Dac record for three years from the date you failed it. When the three years have come in will be totally removed.

Your positive drug testing will stay on your DAC record for three years and after three years it will come off.Then you can go back to looking for a job with the large freight companies again, until then you are going to have to start working for the small freight companies. This happened to someone I know.

See we aren't the privileged and rich like Hollywood where as if your on prescription narcotics and driving down the road toward traffic like Ms. Richie was and receive a slap on the hand from the law. Another example Ms. Paris Hilton drunk driving and then driving again with a revoked license and had to spend an hour in jail because of this. There is two sets of laws one for the poorman and one the richman.

No you don't have to do SAP. If it has been three years,any positive drug test should be removed from your DAC record. Go to hireright.com and request a complete backround check on yourself and you will see everything. If it has been three years and the positive test is still showing, call them to remove it.

All past employers are NOT allowed to tell any potiental employer about why you were discharged, it's illegal.Past employers are only allowed to state the date you worked for them, your title and duties. They are not allowed to say how much you made or any termination reasons or bad mouth you, etc. I worked in Human Resources and gave out info all the time on past employees, so I know what can and cannot be said.

Lynn03,

Please be sure that you are advising drivers as well that the carrier can and will list a company policy violation in the employment history section of the DAC report and this stays on for 7 years. I understand that carriers are not suppose to say anything in regards to a failed drug test but it happens everyday in the trucking industry.

I would think that as long as you pass all pre employment drug screens you would be ok but if test positive now forget it your done.Other wise your recruiter should of informed you different before you signed up if you told them.Smart thing to do is ask but yes i have herd of them not accepting for a prier conviction also.Truking companys do what they want when they want you will learn that.

It will never be removed from your DAC record,unless the company that put it there removes it.It just listed as a company violation after 3 years. It is still there in the back pages of your report as failed drug sceen.If another company calls the company that placed this on your record and does not pull you DAC record it just depends on what they tell your prospected company.Also going throgh a rehab is irelevent to some companys and not even look at you if your have a failed drug screen.

I totally agree .... I still have a problem with the law in general .. I had a situation with a former bank that i used back in 99 - 01... anyway long story short I had to go to court to pay off some checks... that's on my criminal record (misdemeanor) and because i was with a bad bank I get penalized for it... Not right at all!!

Well that's not entire true Roger... If you have some kind of reason why you think that its a false positive you can have it removed but you most likely will need help... I used dacfix and they helped me win my case and I got it removed...now the verification forms that companies use is a different story.. Even if you win, they have the choice to go along with the findings or they can continue to report it for the 3 year period.. It sucks but thats life...

But trust me, I'm not crying i'm just stating a fact because even with that and a false positive that a company tried to bury me with .. my faith in GOD is strong and he has always provided... Yes, I'm employed and still doing what i like to do, which is driving ... I really don't have anything to complain about..

Yeah, someone I know has a record but everything is dismissed. In Mass. it doesn't matter every arraignment shows up with the outcome. If an employer decides to pull your record at anytime they'll see it.

gramps17 in Sebastian, Florida said: anyone who takes a chance with their licence by using drugs or alcohol deserves what happens to them. I know here in Florida we are starting to see people losing their jobs or not being able to be hired because of any kind of points on their record because the insurance companies tell the truck owners they will either raise their rates or cancel them.This can be a good thing for those of us who have excellent driving & criminal records, weeds out the people who should'nt be driving anyway. Its not hard to not get a ticket,or have your beers on a saturday night & not drink. Like I said, this opens up the market for the pros, (people who take their cdl seriously).I managed to get a higher starting rate & this was before this recent insurance situation because I could save my employer $$$$. Keep this in mind when applying: Things are tight all over diesel is $4.00 gal., insurance, up over 20% so a trucking company has to save $ any way they can.They used to absorb the slight increase, but no more

What about the Drivers that don't smoke marijuana, but their spouse significant other has a medicinal card to smoke for medical reasons? How and where can those drivers get help if they test positive on a drug screening? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

SECOND HAND MARIJUANA SMOKE DOES NOT SHOW UP IN URINE TESTS BECAUSE THERE IS NOT ENOUGH RESIDUAL THC TO REGISTER, AND A HAIR TEST WILL POSSIBLY SHOW UP RESIDUE ON YOUR HAIR, BUT SINCE THEY DO ACTUALLY WASH THE HAIR OF ALL CONTAMINANTS BEFORE THEY TEST IT, IF YOU HAVE ENOUGH TO NOT GET CLEANSED BEFORE THEY TEST IT, IN THEIR OPINION YOUR ACTUALLY USING, BECAUSE ITS THE BY-PRODUCTS INSIDE THE HAIR FOLLICLE THEY'RE TESTING FOR. YES ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE, THERE ARE PLENTY OF TRUE STORIES OF FALSE-POSITIVES, BUT OVERALL EVEN IF YOU DON'T USE, STAY AWAY FROM PEOPLE WHO DO WHILE THEY ARE USING EVEN IF THEY ARE FAMILY MEMBERS WITH PRESCRIPTION WEED USE. MAKE THEM GO TO A SECLUDED AREA (I.E. GARAGE, OUTSIDE PORCH, AN AREA OPEN TO GOOD VENTILATION) WHERE THEY CAN LESSEN THE CHANCES OF CONTAMINATION TO YOU. I SMOKED WEED SOCIALLY WHEN I WAS ABOUT 19-24. BUT ONCE WHEN I WAS 32 I SMOKED WITH AN OLD FRIEND THE DAY BEFORE I GOT POPPED FOR A RANDOM D.O.T. DRUG SCREEN. IT DID NOT SHOW UP. I'M A BIG GUY SO I DO TRULY BELIEVE THE OLD SAYING SIZE COUNTS. MAYBE IT WAS LUCK, MAYBE IT WAS A PHYSICAL FACT THAT IF YOU TRULY DON'T DO A LOT OF SOMETHING, IT DOESN'T STICK WITH YOU.

USUALLY WHEN YOU TELL A RECRUITER THE WHOLE TRUTH, IF THEY ARE CONTINUING IT IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE APPROVED YOU OVER THE CHARGE.
