UPDATE: Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse Website Technical Difficulties



As you may be aware, the FMCSA Clearinghouse portal was recently down. The issue has since been resolved, but in case this was to happen in the future, the following information was provided on what to do if trying to hire a driver but are unable to access the Clearinghouse to perform the pre-employment query:

“Notice: If you are an employer currently experiencing technical difficulties accessing the Clearinghouse and are unable to conduct required pre-employment queries, you may hire a driver using solely the procedures set forth in 49 CFR 391.23(e). Once FMCSA has determined and announced that users are able to access the Clearinghouse, pre-employment queries must also be conducted as required by section 382.701(a).”

Additionally, FMCSA has provided clearinghouse registration/ portal resources which can be found HERE . They are also available on the FSSolutions’ Clearinghouse Resource Page
