He should have never applied with a carrier that does hair follicle tests.. The Hair Follicle tests are not approved to satisfy the FMCSR/DOT requirements for drug tests and all the articles I can find state that these hair test results cannot be shared either. I do NOT know 100% and at this time it may be time to contact a lawyer to see what the options are here. I would say that he damned sure should be worried because while the results "cannot be shared" apparently in SC.. someone sure thinks that they are. They cannot as far as I know report it to the DOT.. but they can share the information that he failed a hair follicle test for sure as it is the truth.

which is true?
If you fail, or even if you are unable to provide a specimen it goes on the dac report as a failure.

The DAC report contains your complete professional driver job history including accidents/incidents, MVR record, drug/alcohol test history, plus criminal history. Approximately 90% of all U.S. long haul commercial carriers use the DAC Report for pre-employment screening.

Sorry but if you can't pass a drug test you should drive for Uber.
Better yet work for McDonalds. A out of control bag of frys has not killed anyone yet.

Uber's drug policy "zero drug testing"

The company has been quoted as saying some foolish things too.
"If we drug tested we would lose half our drivers"


Do what ever you want but please stay away from the drivers seat until you can pass a drug test. Its best for everybody on the road.

No professional driver needs his career lost because of a fool using drugs. There are enough sober fools on the road who can't drive. Lets keep the stoned ones off the road and out of the trucks.

I have been drug tested for the last 8+ years.
Its not a test you need to study for.
Its simple to pass "JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS".

I failed a pre-employment drug screen at a well known oil company they did not report it to DAC.

From my own experience I will explain what I went through in regards to taking a pre-employment drug screen and failing it. I applied and went to a 3-day orientation for XYZ Trucking Co. and failed the drug screen This was a pre-employment drug screen. When I requested a copy of my DAC Report the actual failed drug test results were NOT DOCUMENTED on the actual DAC report itself. On the report it indicates to the company that administered the drug test, that if more information is needed in regards to test results, the company must fax for the info. So instead of documenting it on the actual DAC Report, it tells you to fax for the information. So either way they will find out whether there was a pass or fail.

I agree they won't. But they will indicate for the potential employer to fax for more info and that is where they get you. It won't be on the actual DAC. But when they fax for info it will be discovered in that information received.
