If my driver with a commercial drivers license (CDL) tests positive will his/her CDL be suspended?
No. The Federal Motor Carrier Regulations do not suspend the CDL if the driver tests positive on a drug test or has an alcohol test of 0.04 or greater. In Oregon, if the Oregon licensed driver is employed by an Oregon employer subject to ORS 825, the verified positive drug test result will be reported to the Oregon DMV and it will be posted to his/her driving record. In Washington, if the Washington licensed driver tests positive for drugs, alcohol, or refuses a test this will be reported to the Washington Department of Licensing (DOL) and will suspend the CDL until the driver completes the required Return-to-Duty process, 49 CFR Part 40 Subpart O. Other states may have similar requirements.
