Step 2: Answer Questions

After payment, fill out the detailed questionnaire about your health, job, and social relationships. Take your time for accurate answers.

Step 3: Chat with Us

You will meet with the counselor via video at your initial evaluation appointment. If necessary, they will assist with your FMCSA Clearinghouse account. You will receive your results via email within 48 hours or less†, along with recommendations for education, counseling, or treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Have questions? We have the answers!

A DOT SAP (Substance Abuse Professional) evaluation is a process mandated by the Department of Transportation (DOT) for employees who have violated DOT drug and alcohol testing regulations. It involves an assessment by a qualified SAP to determine whether an individual is fit for duty following a substance abuse violation.

A virtual DOT SAP evaluation allows individuals to undergo the assessment process remotely, typically via video conferencing or telehealth platforms. This enables greater accessibility and convenience for those undergoing the evaluation.

The FMCSA Clearinghouse is a secure online database that serves as a central repository for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers’ drug and alcohol program records. It was established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to improve safety on the roads by providing employers, the FMCSA, State Driver Licensing Agencies (SDLAs), and other authorized users with real-time access to information about drug and alcohol program violations committed by CDL drivers.

Once you meet with one of our counselors via video for your initial evaluation, they will guide you in assigning your case to them in the FMCSA. This is a required step that allows our counselor to provide key updates about your case in the FMCSA Clearinghouse.

To assign your case to a DrugEval.com SAP in the FMCSA Clearinghouse, follow these steps:

Step 1: Log in to your Clearinghouse account

  • Log in to your Clearinghouse account using your username and password. If you don’t have an account yet, you’ll need to create one.

Step 2: Navigate to the ‘My Dashboard’ section

  • Once logged in, navigate to the ‘My Dashboard’ section of the Clearinghouse. This section contains options for managing your account and cases.

Step 3: Select ‘Assign a Case’

  • Look for the option to ‘Assign a Case’ or ‘Initiate an Assignment’ within the ‘My Dashboard’ section. Click on this option to proceed.

Step 4: Enter driver information

  • Enter the required information about the driver whose case you want to assign to a SAP. This may include the driver’s CDL number, name, and date of birth.

Step 5: Choose a SAP

  • Once the driver’s information is entered, you’ll be prompted to select the name of the DrugEval.com SAP from the list of counselors in the Clearinghouse database.

Step 6: Monitor the status

  • Keep track of the assignment’s status through your Clearinghouse account. You’ll receive notifications and updates as the SAP progresses through the evaluation process.

The time it takes to return to duty varies for each individual and can only be determined after completing the initial evaluation with a substance abuse professional. No substance abuse professional or counselor can predict the duration of your process before this evaluation.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) requires everyone to complete substance abuse education classes if there is no risk for a substance use disorder or no symptoms for a substance use diagnosis. These classes can range from 4 to 16 hours, depending on your situation.

The entire DOT evaluation and return to duty process includes:

  1. Initial Evaluation: Conducted by a substance abuse professional (SAP).
  2. Completing Recommendations: Based on the initial evaluation, which may include education classes or treatment.
  3. Follow-up Evaluation: To assess progress and readiness.

After completing these steps, you can be designated as retest eligible and take the DOT retest. This retest must be ordered by an employer or potential employer. Upon passing the retest, you can return to work.

Whether you need classes or treatment following a drug and alcohol evaluation depends on various factors, like what the evaluation reveals and what the evaluator suggests. If the evaluation says you have a substance abuse problem or might develop one, the evaluator might suggest joining classes, therapy, or a treatment program. But if the evaluator determines you don’t show signs of a substance abuse problem and aren’t likely to develop one, they’ll recommend suitable education or classes, following DOT rules. According to DOT rules, at the very least, you must go through an educational intervention after a violation.

Many providers of classes/education offer both in-person and online options, so you can choose what is most convenient for you. Additionally, many providers of classes/education offer self-paced learning options, allowing you to complete the classes on your own schedule.

Most treatment providers prefer in-person treatment. However, some offer hybrid models that combine in-person and telehealth (virtual) sessions. The availability of these options will depend on the providers in your area.

Yes, our counselor will assist you in finding a provider to complete your recommendation. Additionally, our counselors are available via text and email to communicate with you openly until your case is fully resolved.

Yes, the cost of completing the recommendation (which may include classes or treatment) will be an additional out-of-pocket expense. You will need to pay a separate provider for these services. According to DOT rules and regulations, we cannot benefit financially from the recommendations we make. Therefore, you must use a different provider to complete the recommended classes or treatment.

We’re confident in the quality of our evaluation reports. If a report is rejected by the requesting party, we offer a 100% refund. Limitations and conditions apply; check our Refund Policy page for more information.

We currently do not accept insurance for our evaluation services. To make our services affordable and accessible, we provide transparent, affordable pricing.
