Do I need a post accident drug test?

Maybe. Post-accident drug tests only apply to CDLs and only in CDL vehicles. In addition one of the following factors must occur to use a DOT Regulated Post-Accident Drug Test.

-Human Fatality
-Bodily Injury
(If your driver was cited and there was immediate medical treatment away from the scene.)
-Vehicle was Towed (If your driver was cited)

*Please note that some states and local jurisdictions require drug testing post-accident. In addition, many companies require post-accident testing following any major incident. While testing may still occur, it must not be an FMCSA Regulated Test unless the criteria above have been met.
