Original Article    9/23/05       

North Carolina House Bill 740 passed on July 5th 2005.  This bill requires any transit operator or employers of persons who operate commercial vehicles subject to the Federal [Department of Transportation (DOT)] alcohol and drug testing requirements to report any positive tests required by those regulations to the Department of Motor Vehicles for disqualification of their commercial drivers license.  The responsibility for reporting will rest with EMPLOYERS to report the violations, in writing, to the Department of Motor Vehicles, within five (5) days of notification of the verified positive test.   DMV procedures are still being worked out on the reporting and process requirements.  This action is intended to prevent the active user from moving from employer to employer by not self disclosing to the new employer a previous positive, as required by Federal regulation.

This legislation directs DMV, beginning December 1, 2005, to disqualify any offending CDL holder from operating a commercial vehicle by suspending his/her Commercial license (doesn't necessarily affect his or her license to drive a non commercial vehicle) until the individual completes the required 49CFR Part 40 Subpart - Substance Abuse Professionals and the Return-to-Duty Process.   (Because of clarity issues in the law the 12/1/05 implementation may have to be changed)

Two important areas of clarification or attention:

  1. In light of the CDL license suspension until the required education/treatment is fully completed, it is likely qualified SAP's are going to receive more pressure to "shorten" required education/treatment.  SAP's must keep their qualification current in case called to testify on an appeal.

  2. This legislation should not be confused with the comprehensive legislation recently adopted to bring NC CDL violations in compliance with the violation offenses of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.  State reporting of positive alcohol and drug test is not part of those federal violations.
