Drug Screening Policy

Federal regulations require Commercial Truck Driving Programs in public schools to participate in DOT drug screening. The statute requires that all persons driving a commercial vehicle, whether licensed / permit or employed / student, must pass a DOT drug screening and be subjected to random drug and alcohol testing during their training or employment.

Under this regulation, all applicants to the Umpqua Community College Truck Driving Program will be required to pass a DOT (Pre-employment) drug screen within 30 days before starting the training, and be prepared for random testing during the road training period.

Applicants may obtain their drug screening at:

Evergreen Family Medicine
2570 NW Edenbower Blvd
Roseburg, OR 97470
Phone: 541-677-7477

The cost of a DOT (pre-employment) drug screen is about $60.00 (subject to change without notice) The cost of the DOT physical is about $110 (subject to change without notice)

Patients must present photo ID and let the receptionist know you are there for the UCC Commercial Truck Driving Program. You will be asked to sign a “Patient Authorization for release of Confidential Drug Screening and/or Alcohol Testing Information and Records” form. This gives the clinic authorization to release the test results directly to UCC. If you have any questions, please contact EFN (OccuHealth) at 541-679-2273.

Our office will be notified of your results and you can get a copy from UCC Commercial Truck Driving Program Coordinator. We will notify you if there is a problem with the drug screen. EFM is qualified to do DOT physicals; you will need to schedule an appointment for the physical. Do not have the drug screen until you have been approved by the CDL program coordinator and your funding agency (if you have one). Physical can be scheduled at any time and must be completed before a CDL permit can be issued by DMV. Drug screen should be completed 5 – 10 days prior to the start of class.
