The DOT Drug Test is a urine drug test. During this test, a urine sample will be collected from the participant and sent to an HHS-certified lab. These labs are certified by The Department of Health and Human Services to conduct drug and specimen validity tests for federal agencies. Please note that a DOT drug test is not an instant drug test as the DOT requires that the urine sample be sent to HHS-certified lab after the collection.
