Everyone knows that alcohol, drugs, and driving don't mix. Yet drivers who are under the influence are still a major cause of accidents.

In this course, we discuss this requirement and how it affects transportation employees, as well as the testing process itself, what happens if a driver tests positive for a substance, and how to get help for a drug or alcohol problem.
