Alcoholism

                                                              Alcoholism
 
When an interstate driver tests positive for alcohol or controlled substances under Part 382, the driver is not required to be medically re-examined or to obtain a new medical examiner’s certificate provided the driver is seen by a SAP who evaluates the driver and does not make a clinical diagnosis of alcoholism. The SAP provides the driver with documentation allowing the driver to return to work.
 
If the SAP determines that alcoholism exists, the driver is not qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle in interstate commerce. The ultimate responsibility rests with the motor carrier to ensure the driver is medically qualified and to determine whether a new medical examination should be completed.
