The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (effective date 1995) apply for all vehicles (vans and buses) designed to carry 16 or more passengers. These regulations apply to churches and schools and require U.S. DOT numbers on all “covered vehicles” and commercial driver’s licenses (CDL) for the drivers of these vehicles. The regulations also require that every CDL driver of these vehicles be part of a random drug and alcohol testing program. The laws apply equally to paid CDL employees and volunteers.
The National Drug and Alcohol Testing Program has been developed for churches, Christian schools, private schools, colleges, universities, vocational schools, kindergartens, day care facilities, and other religious, charitable, and educational organizations. This program provides the means to meet all the federal drug and alcohol testing regulations that apply. All the participants of the program will be placed in a single pool for purposes of random selection for drug and alcohol testing.
