CDL Program

Individuals who use a commercial driver’s license (CDL) during employment with NC State are subject to rules and regulations governed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the Department of Transportation (DOT), in addition to policies established by NC State.  The Background Check Program prioritizes compliance with these rules and regulations to ensure the safety of the university community.

The Background Check Program is responsible for performing additional due diligence prior to hiring CDL drivers, coordinating a DOT-regulated drug and alcohol testing program, facilitating training, and maintaining all records related to these efforts.
