Dec. 16 — 12-1 p.m.
Driving for a city is serious business. Because of this, cities need to ensure anyone operating a vehicle on behalf of the city is doing so responsibly. Starting January 6, 2020, you will be able to use the Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse, a new tool to identify drivers who are prohibited from operating a commercial motor vehicle based on U.S. Department of Transportation drug and alcohol program violations.
An act of Congress established the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act (FMCSA) and the Clearinghouse — a secure online database that gives you real-time information about commercial driver’s license and commercial learner’s permit holders’ drug and alcohol program violations. As an employer, your city will be able to identify drivers who commit a drug or alcohol program violation, even if the violation occurred while the driver was working for a different employer or the driver failed to inform your city.
With this new tool comes new expectations for your city. During this free webinar, Mark Girouard from Nilan Johnson Lewis will take you through the key components of the Clearinghouse, helping you understand what your city will need to do to use and submit information.
