What is the FMCSA Clearinghouse?

The FMCSA Clearinghouse is a database online created to help employers and enforcement officials keep track of commercial motor vehicle drivers who have failed an alcohol or drug test within the last 5 years, or if there are any unresolved violations for a particular driver that might prohibit them from driving. This is useful for motor carriers — acting as a mandatory repository for any drug and alcohol violations occurring on or after January 6, 2020 — and is meant to ultimately help keep fleets and the public safer.
