“A secure, online database that will give employers and other authorized users real-time information about commercial driver’s license (CDL) and commercial learner’s permit (CLP) holders’ drug and alcohol program violations, thus improving safety on our Nation’s roadways.”
The Clearinghouse has been a long time coming, and now it’s here and it’s up and running. The premise is simple enough. If there has been a CDL holder negative test, every employer should have access to that information. By the same token every CDL holder should have the ability to make sure that his information is accurately reported.
Every driver, employer, owner-operator, C/TPA, MRO and SAP should understand the value of Clearinghouse and their role in the process. If you haven’t already done so, visit Clearinghouse now and click on Learning Center to see where you stand.
All of us know that Clearinghouse, if used promptly and effectively, is a good thing.
