What Is CDL Clearinghouse?
The CDL Clearinghouse provides employers and privileged departments with a real-time accurate online database or records regarding positive drug and alcohol violations committed by CDL drivers. Also showing if they have been engaged in other disqualifying conduct, at previous and current employers.
This ensures that such drivers go through the required assessment and treatment before operating a CMV on public roads. It also helps employers avoid any risks that come with the hiring process.
Knowing the Clearinghouse CDL driver’s history can potentially minimize the number of violators on the roads and help keep citizens safe at all times.Get Started

Clearinghouse CDL Rules Who Must Submit Reports
Unsure if you are required to submit reports to the Clearinghouse? Anyone who holds a commercial driver’s license for driving on public roadways or employers who hire these drivers are affected by this new change.
Some of the people who should take notice of this process include interstate and intrastate motor carriers, passenger carriers, school bus drivers, construction equipment operators, limousine drivers, municipal vehicle drivers, owner-operators, and business owners who employ any of the above.
Most companies and drivers are to continuously update their profiles after every drug testing. Therefore, there are some Clearinghouse CDL rules that you and your team should be aware of during the entirety of the process.
Parties are required to report and update drug and alcohol violations:
- FMCSA-regulated employers
- Medical Review Officers (MROs)
- Substance Abuse Professionals (SAPs)
- Consortia/Third-Party Administrators (C/TPAs)
- Other Service Agents
Employers must search the clearinghouse database to learn if the potential CDL drivers have any drug and alcohol violations pre-employment. Employers must also annually monitor the database to see if their drivers are failing to take proper care of their wellbeing and safety while on the road. This keeps transparency between the driver and employer, as well as aids the employer in avoiding any liabilities.
How Does CDL Clearinghouse Service Impact My Business?
The Clearinghouse is an added regulatory protocol for CDL employers to follow in order to be continuously compliant.
This protocol may impact your business in a variety of ways including:
- The pre-employment process
- Annual reviews
- Disclosure & authorization process
