• How DOT Drug Testing Is Different

    Commercial drivers may get their DOT physicals and drug testing done at the same time at a walk-in clinic. As you’ll learn when you watch this video, DOT drug and alcohol testing is significantly different from non-DOT testing. DOT tests are subject to far stricter regulations. This underscores the importance of choosing a clinic that specializes in DOT medical requirements.

    For example, it is not permitted to perform drug and alcohol screenings on the same individual for both DOT and non-DOT purposes at the same time. The samples used for DOT tests cannot be used for non-DOT tests. Additionally, the results of a non-DOT test cannot supersede the results of a DOT test.

    Paramount Urgent Care’s locations in the Orlando area offer DOT physicals, and drug and alcohol testing. For more information, please visit www.paramounturgentcare.com.
