This Owner-operator Brochure explains the special arrangements needed for drivers who employ themselves.
- Drivers who employ themselves (any driver with ownership interest in the company they driver for) MUST designate their Service Agent (C/TPA) to report to the Clearinghouse any violations of drug and alcohol testing requirements.
- If self-employed drivers also employ other drivers, the employer must report any violations by their drivers – or designate CMR to do so.
- Owner-drivers may perform annual queries, or have CMR do so.
