Non-employee failed non-DOT hair test at company sponsored CDL training

Technomattic, you took a DOT drug test. There is now a mandatory FMCA drug clearinghouse that companies are required to check.

You will most likely need a SAP program.

Tammy, Try melatonin or meditation and other non narcotic ways to sleep. From all the past stories I have seen on this site, I would highly recommend anyone be 100% clean for at least one year before taking any kind of drug test.

I do not believe anyone who can't leave drugs or alcohol alone should be driving an 80,000 pound death machine.

I failed the NON-DOT hair test. It was not a DOT test. I passed the DOT urinalysis.

Non-employee failed non-DOT hair test at company sponsored CDL training

I failed the non-DOT hair test while going to company sponsored CDL school. I had taken a hair test on my own 2 weeks prior to that and was negative after abstaining for 5-6 months, so I thought I'd be fine for the preemployment hair test, but I wasn't. Please don't tell me I should've done this or shouldn't have done that.

Anyway, will this still go on my DAC and screw me even though I wasn't an employee? Since it was non-DOT, will it still be reported as a failed drug screen? Will it totally screw me? Or is it worth paying my way through private CDL school and trying to find a local class A or B job with a small local company? I just want some closure and to figure out if I should forget about this industry entirely, I asked my recruiter some of these questions but I'm not getting answers. I know there is zero tolerance for drug use, but it just crushes me that something I did 5+ months in the past can 100% f*** me for the rest of my life.
