What Is FMCSA Clearinghouse?
The FMCSA Clearinghouse is an online database that provides employers, FMCSA, State Driver Licensing Agencies, and State Law personnel access to real-time data about drug and alcohol violations committed by CDL drivers. It is an up-to-date and accurate background history of truck drivers.
The DOT Clearinghouse is a way to improve the safety of our roads by providing access to privileged departments to find CDL driver history. It can help employers avoid risky hires as well as minimize the number of violators on the roads to help keep citizens safe at all times. The DOT Clearinghouse contains information about commercial drivers that are covered by FMCSA’s drug and alcohol program as well as drivers with commercial learner’s permits (CLPs).Get Started

FMCSA Clearinghouse Rules Who Must Submit Reports
Unsure if you are required to submit reports to the Clearinghouse? The FMCSA requires companies, drivers, and others to continuously update their profiles and keep them up to date. Here are some of the FMCSA Clearinghouse rules that you and your team should be aware of.
The following parties must report and update drug and alcohol violations to FMCSA:
- FMCSA-regulated employers
- Medical Review Officers (MROs)
- Substance Abuse Professionals (SAPs)
- Consortia/Third-Party Administrators (C/TPAs)
Before an employee is able to be hired or perform safety-sensitive work, employers must search the FMCSA Clearinghouse for current and prospective employees’ drug and alcohol violations. Employers also must search the database annually for drivers they currently employ. This allows for a transparent look into each driver’s history to ensure safety for everyone.
