    I thought it was supposed to be an only Urine test. The doc that I went to ran a blood test on me, got the results in 48hrs. I’m good on the test, but what are they exactly looking for? Truckers who do speed? Meth? Cocaine?

    Speed, Meth, and Cocaine are usually out of a users system in 24-48 hours. The drug that stays in a users system the longest, and is the cause of many failed drug tests is Pot.

    Only time I heard of blood being tested is if you refuse a breathalyzer.

    Never heard of a random blood test. OP, we’re you involved in an accident?

    Nah, but it was an offer. “Would you be willing to do a blood test?” I said yeah why not.

    Clearing house was last year and it is just to report positive tests, UA is still the only DOT acceptable test as far as I know.

    Looks like a doctor wanted to make additional $ or $$ on op's account.

    Clearing House is for carriers to use as they hire people. I am not even sure if a CDL holder is required to set up his account. But the way it works is that a carrier during a hiring process is supposed to run a query on a prospective driver and see if there is any drug/alcohol history. For that, the prospective driver needs to consent and he does it via his account, or perhaps if he or she does not have one there could be a different channel.
    I have done the query on myself and had an instant report that had no abuse history, which is true. The Clearinghouse is up and running.
