How To Order Drug and Alcohol Tests

Non-DOT Drug Testing

For Non-DOT drug tests you can order drug tests paperlessly at drugtest.inoutlabs.com

DOT Drug Testing

You can order DOT tests two different ways:

  • Drug Test Only

    Electronic Order: Order at drugtest.inoutlabs.com. You may send the Donor Pass by email through the system, or download a pdf and print it.

    Paper Order: Send donor with a 5-part paper Custody and Control Form (CCF)* which was sent to you directly from the lab.

  • Drug and Alcohol

    Electronic Order: Order at drugtest.inoutlabs.com.

    • If your drugtest.inoutlabs.com has a “DOT Drug and BAT” package available, you may order it that way.
    • If your account does not have that combo package, create a DOT Drug Test order as above, and send the donor with a completed Authorization Form (emailed to you previously and located in your Client Vault.
      The donor will need BOTH the Authorization Form AND the Donor Pass generated in drugtest.inoutlabs.com

    Paper Order

    Send donor with a 5-part paper Custody and Control Form (CCF)* which may have sent to you directly from the lab AND a completed Authorization Form (emailed to you previously and located in your Client Vault. Not all accounts are set up with paper CCFs.


    The donor will need BOTH the Authorization Form AND the 5 Part CCF.

*These are 5 part carbonless forms printed on a dot matrix printer.

Donors sent for testing will need to take the following:

  • Government-issued Photo ID

  • Custody and Control Form (CCF) OR Electronic Requisition Form

  • Authorization Form (If a Breath Alcohol Test is ordered)

We suggest you keep at least one paper CCF in each vehicle to use in the event a post-accident test is needed or a cdriver is selected for a random test when away from home.

Testing Center (aka “Collection Site”) – Your testing center(s) will be listed on the Authorization Form.

Best Practices for DOT Random Drug Testing

The following is summarized from this US DOT document (PDF)

FMCSA Clearinghouse Queries
  • Conduct random drug tests any time employees are on duty or while performing safety sensitive duties. Conduct random alcohol tests just before, during, or just after the employee performs a safety sensitive job.
  • Ensure that each employee receives no advance notice of selection. Before notifying the employee, confirm collection sites are available for testing.
  • Provide appropriate privacy for each employee the fact that he or she is being tested.
  • If an employee selected for testing is known to be unavailable during the selection cycle (legitimate extended absence, long-term illness, etc.), document the reason and request InOut Labs to select an alternate.
  • Once the employee is notified to report for testing and the test does not occur, the opportunity for the random testing is over. There is no second “bite of the apple.” Contact InOut Labs for guidance should this occur.
  • When an employee is notified, he or she must proceed immediately to the collection site. “Immediately” means that after notification, all the employee’s actions must lead to an immediate specimen collection.
