FMCSA Announces Increased Random Testing for 2020

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has announced an increase in the rate of random drug testing for Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) drivers and other safety-sensitive employees. The minimum rate for 2020 will be 50% of the drivers in the testing pool.

This testing rate varies based on the percentage of positive tests each year. Since the rate of positive rose to 1% in 2019, the rate must be increased. Employers are allowed to test at a higher rate. Alcohol testing rate remains at a minimum of 10%.
