SUBSTANCE ABUSE POLICY
CDL Technical & Motorcycle Driving School is concerned with the ever-increasing use of alcohol and drugs by individuals in our society. The establishment intends to make sure that any such use by our students does not create risks or hazards or harm on the facility’s premises to any of our students, as well as to any school property and equipment. CDL Technical & Motorcycle Driving School policy is to see that all students are free from the use of drugs and alcohol, while on school property. A student on the property having possession of, possessing on the student’s body, transferring, selling or attempting to sell or transfer any form of drugs or alcohol during the hours between the beginning and end of the student’s classes, is guilty of misconduct and is subject to expulsion, even if this is a first offense. It is a standard of conduct for students of CDL Technical & Motorcycle Driving School to not use drugs or alcohol on our grounds.
In order to maintain this standard,CDL Technical & Motorcycle Driving School complies with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Part 382 Controlled Drug & Alcohol Use & Testing requirements.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) adopted regulations requiring certain commercial motor vehicle operators to be tested for alcohol and drugs in order to reach the goal of an alcohol and drug-free transportation environment.
Part 382 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s alcohol and drug testing rules apply to every person and to all employers or CDL Technical & Motorcycle Driving School of such persons who operate a commercial motor vehicle in commerce in any state.
FMCSA PART 382 TESTS REQUIREMENTS
The following requirements apply to all individuals who are required to have or are obtaining a CDL for the type vehicle they plan to operate:
a) Pre-In-Vehicle Training: This test is required and negative results must be received before an employer or CDL Technical & Motorcycle Driving School allows a student/driver to perform a safety sensitive function. The pre-In-Vehicle test is only required for controlled substances (DRUG). Alcohol testing is permitted.
b) Reasonable Suspicion: This test is required when a trained instructor\supervisor\employer has reasonable suspicion to believe that the student/driver has used alcohol and or controlled substances.
c) Random: This unannounced testing is based on a random selection of students/drivers. The selection must be made by a scientifically valid method and all students/drivers covered by this rule must have an equal chance of being tested. The names of students/drivers who are selected for testing must be kept confidential until such time that the employer/school notifies the student/driver to take the test. Once the student/driver is notified, he/she must immediately proceed to the testing facility and undergo testing. Every student’s/driver’s name that is selected for testing must be returned to the selection pool so that all students/drivers have an equal chance of being selected at anytime.
d) Random alcohol:: Random alcohol testing is also required by the DOT. However, random alcohol tests can only be administered just prior to a student/driver performing a safety-sensitive function, while performing a safety-sensitive function, or just after performing a safety-sensitive function. Random controlled substances tests can be conducted at any time the student/driver is notified. A student/driver who is selected and refuses to submit to a test must follow the requirements of 49 CFR Part 40, Subpart O (SAP).
e) Post-accident: This test applies to all students/drivers who are involved in fatal crashes. The test must also be conducted on all students/drivers who are cited for moving violations arising in a crash that requires a vehicle being towed or an injury requiring medical attention away from the scene. The alcohol test must be conducted within 8 hours and the controlled substances test must be conducted within 32 hours of the crash.
f) Consequences:: A student/driver who has violated the FMCSA part 382 Controlled Drug & Alcohol Use & Testing is prohibited from performing DOT safety-sensitive duties for any employer or CDL Technical & Motorcycle Driving School until he/she completes the Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) evaluation, referral and education/treatment program set forth in 49 CFR Part 40 Subpart O, and in applicable FMCSA regulations.
