Steps to Register your company with Clearinghouse:
What is the FMCSA Clearinghouse:
A secure, online database that will give employers and other authorized users real-time information about commercial driver’s license (CDL) and commercial learner’s permit (CLP) holders’ drug and alcohol program violations. The Clearinghouse will improve safety on our Nation’s roadways by giving employers access to information they need to make informed safety decisions about which employees to place in safety-sensitive functions, including operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV).
All DOT FMCSA companies need to be registered with the Clearinghouse in order to be in regulatory compliance and complete their responsibilities of Record, Query and Consent.
