Employers who are responsible for conducting federally-required drug and alcohol tests for truck drivers having a commercial driver’s license (49 C.F.R. Part 382) and for transit employees in safety sensitive positions (49 C.F.R. Part 655) are required to report the positive results of such tests to the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Notification to DMV must occur within five days after the employer receives confirmation of the positive test result. This written notification must provide the following information:


  • Name of driver
  • Address of driver
  • Driver license number
  • Social security number
  • Results of drug/alcohol test


This reporting requirement has been in effect since December 1, 2005. Penalties for reporting violations range from $500 to $1,000. To access the reporting forms to comply with these reporting requirements, go to
