DOT Alcohol Test

A DOT Breath Alcohol Test is an Evidential Breath Test (Breathalyzer) for CDL drivers, ship captains, pilots, and other safety-sensitive employees to be administered at certain defined circumstances such as after an accident or on a random basis. Employers and individuals can register online or call (888) 378-2499 to set up testing for staff or others. We offer DOT breath alcohol testing at over 5000 clinic locations nationwide.

Our online registration for our DOT alcohol test process is simple. You choose the lab location based on ZIP code during registration. An authorization barcode is instantly emailed to you and texted directly to the phone of the person being tested. A map of the clinic location will accompany the barcode. The registrant can then walk in to the alcohol testing facility and show the barcode along with photo ID. Mobile post-accident service is also available in most areas. Results are fast, signed by a doctor, and reported securely online.

Evidential Breath Testing (EBTs)

Health Street's DOT Alcohol Tests are performed using federally approved devices known as Evidential Breath Testers (EBTs). Breath Alcohol devices must only respond to alcohol in order to get approved by the Department of Transportation, which publishes a list of approved devices on the federal register. Approved devices must never respond to other volatiles like acetone, which can be present in the breath of a sober person. This means the results of a properly administered DOT Breath Alcohol Test will never yield a false positive, and can therefore be used as evidence in a court of law.

Breath Alcohol Test Results

Breath Alcohol Tests provide instant results for negative screenings. Breath alcohol technicians use an Alcohol Testing Form (ATF) to record results. Non-negative screenings lead to a 15 minute wait period followed by a second test known as a confirmation test, which also provides an instant result. When this occurs, only the results of the confirmation test count. Results over 0.020 BAC are considered positive, and the employee must be removed from safety sensitive work immediately.  Results over 0.040 are even more serious; the employee may not return to work until approved to do so by a Substance Abuse Professional.  

How to Register

Registering and finding a clinic for a DOT Breath Alcohol test is fast and easy for companies or individuals.

Status notifications

Once registered, a barcode authorization and a map with the clinic address is immediately sent via email. Employers can choose to provide the employee's cell phone number to enable instant text messaging of the barcode and clinic address, or else they can simply forward the email registration to their candidate or employee at their convenience. The barcode is then presented to the professional technician at the chosen alcohol testing facility along with government issued photo ID, and the test is administered. The company or person who placed the order is notified when the results are ready to review securely online. In the case of a positive result, the company’s Designated Employer Representative will be notified as soon as possible, in order that the employee be removed from safety sensitive duties.

Reasons for DOT Drug Testing

DOT Drug and alcohol tests are administered under the federal authority of the agency overseeing the industry in which a company operates. DOT and its agencies define the reasons which prompt the need for tests. The opposite is also true. DOT drug tests cannot be administered unless it falls into one of the predefined categories. The following are reasons when DOT drug tests must be given:
  • Pre-employment
  • Random
  • Post Accident
  • Reasonable Suspicion
  • Return to duty
  • Follow up

You listened to my problem and addressed it quickly. The results of the DOT alcohol breath tests should be posted very quickly and there was over a 3 hour delay. I know this is probably due to a delay in the results be given to you but the end result is the same.
