Motor Carrier HQ Is Still Fully Operational As Well As Keeping Our Employees Safe. Feel free to give us a call!

If you’ve started your own trucking company and have more than one driver, you may be required to certify that you’ve provided a drug and alcohol abuse training to your supervisors. Motor Carrier HQ offers a training course that’s completely online and fulfills the requirements set by the FMCSA.

What Do I Need to Do to Meet the Requirements?

Trucking companies with two or more drivers are required to have a supervisor that has taken a course on recognizing indicators that create a reasonable suspicion that a driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It should also outline the process on how to refer that employee for testing. The FMCSA requires that the training includes:

  • 60 minutes of training on the symptoms of alcohol abuse
  • 60 minutes of training on the symptoms of controlled substances use

Take Our Online Supervisor Training

While there are no regulated training offered by the FMCSA, our 120-minute course covers everything you need to know, plus we provide a certificate to prove you went through the course in case of a safety audit or compliance review.

This course is taken through an interactive online learning system, meaning you can complete this training anywhere. You don’t have to come to our office to do it, and it only costs $80.

What’s Included in Our Course?

Our comprehensive 120-minute curriculum includes lessons in:

  • Personal problems versus drug/alcohol
  • Addictive disease and enabling
  • Common supervisor myths
  • Rationale for reasonable suspicion training
  • Major drug categories and types
  • Understanding alcoholism
  • All about beverage alcohol
  • Understanding denial
  • Excuses employees use when confronted
  • Understanding tolerance and impact
  • Cross tolerance and cross addiction
  • Loss of control: what it really mean
  • Understanding denial
  • Drug photos, categories, symptoms
  • Performance signs and symptoms
  • What to measure with job performance
  • Avoiding armchair diagnosis
  • Enabling: coworkers, supervisors, and others
  • Work performance curve for drug users
  • Drugs of abuse chart
  • Confronting behavior: three ways
  • Follow-up with employees

After the appropriate personnel have taken the courses, you will be provided with a certificate that proves your completion of this fulfillment. You can then print this certificate out to keep for your own records.

I’m an Owner Operator. Do I Need This Training?

If you are an independent owner operator operating under your own authority with no other employees, you are not required to get this training. However, you are most likely required to join a drug and alcohol consortium like the one we offer.

Very professional and trustworthy company. They have helped our business since the very beginning, getting our permits and authority and staying compliant. Ariel and Mercedes also helped us prepare for audits and even helped getting us back into satisfactory status. Overall a great experience.

Brandon was excellent in his knowledge and explanation of what would be required for my needs. I highly recommend using Progressive for all of your DOT compliance needs.

- Cory Clement

I absolutely love the people I work with in Midvale! They have been extremely helpful and pleasant and never make you feel stupid for all the many questions that come up from starting a new trucking company. They are all knowledgeable and lead you through the steps to keep you compliant with all the DOT, IRS and IFTA regulations. Thanks Tyler, Jaclyn, Liz, Tina and Haley!

My life is simpler because of Progressive Reporting Agency. They are experts at what they do so I don’t have to be.  Their entire organization is efficient, professional and a joy to work with.  I can’t imagine trying to run my business without them.

- Tyler P. – Vernal, UT

Working with Progressive for over the last 10 years has been great for our business. We are able to call and get a live person who is an expert in the area where we need assistance. That has helped us make good business decisions. The service is prompt and they are usually able to get complicated things handled quickly.

- Kathy – Las Vegas, NV

We want to say thank you for all the help you have given us over the last 8 years. You have helped us with our licensing, registration and permitting, which are complicated tasks we don’t have the time to dedicate to. Taking those tasks off our plate has allowed us to focus on growth, which is one of the reasons we have been able to grow from 1 truck to over 50 in less than 8 years.

- Corey W. – North Salt Lake, UT

We had an issue with our US DOT number that we tried to fix ourselves. After weeks of frustration and getting nowhere, we made one call to Progressive Reporting and the problem was solved within 2 hours. Now we have Progressive Reporting’s contact info in all of our trucks.
