What Is DOT Drug Testing?

Our trained healthcare workers will provide you with this DOT-Compliant testing from the comfort of your own home or workspace. We will come to you at your earliest convenience.

What Is The Process For This Test?
Urine tests require you to stay hydrated on the day of your test. A healthcare provider with Speedy Sticks will give you a kit that has instructions for how to collect urine from the comfort of your home or workplace. The test needs a clean sample of urine, which requires the patient to wash their hands as well as clean their genital area to ensure an uncontaminated sample.
When this test will be performed depends on the following factors:
What Do The Test Results Mean?
Drug tests generally have three types of results, positive, negative or inconclusive. When the test is positive, this signifies that a specific concentration of drug, whether prescription or illegal, was found in your urine. Positive results are not sent to the employer until the type of drug in your urine is confirmed. If you take prescription medication, alert your employer, and have documentation on hand from your provider.
If the test is negative, then there is either no concentration of a drug in your urine or the cut-off levels were too low. An inconclusive test means a specialist could not detect a specific drug in your urine. This could be due to diluted urine or other factors. Negative test results can take up to 48 hours to return to your employer.
