    I can only speak from my own experience, but my last random was only a drug test. There was no breathalyzer for alcohol. Several of my colleagues have experienced the same thing at times. Sometimes it’s both and sometimes only one.

    Moose posted it already, but its clear as day to me and my employer confirmed it. If I get selected for a random, they wont be contacting me till im coming back to on duty status.

    And ive never been alcohol tested. Only the occasional random drug test. But, dispatch did say they have had people go for random alcohol tests in the past.

    Not sure what the question is here in this thread. Your company gives you a random for alcohol and/or drugs and you refuse "Your Fired" and rightly so. They can test me everyday, could care less, nothing to.see here...move along. .

    I had a chance to speak to someone that has a bit more knowledge of this testing then I do tonight. What I am hearing is basically your position is correct. However there is no real FMCSA guidance. This person said they will wait for a while if someone is away on vacation. If it turns into a long issue like being in the hospital etc they can take that name out and recycle it. However they do have to make sure the total tests called for in that list is done. So in essence I think if you have took some time off you should be safe from being called to test.
