How does it work?
Once you have added the DOT Drug Test to your cart and checked out, our team will be notified. They will then go online and schedule your drug test using a paperless form at the closest facility to the billing address you entered when checking out. You will then receive an electronic authorization via text &/or email letting you know the event has been scheduled. This authorization will also tell you the location to go to complete the test. You will have ten days to complete the test from the time it is scheduled. The results will be emailed to you after they are completed.
How long does it take?
The collection process shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes. The results should be back within 24 to 48 hours unless they undergo a medical review due to a prescription.
*Please note the authorization will be sent within 24 hours after ordering.
