From 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, January 13 to 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 17, 2021, GEORGIA commercial driver’s licenses (CDLs) may not be verified in the Clearinghouse, due to scheduled system maintenance with the Georgia Commercial Driver License Information System (CDLIS). If this prevents an employer from conducting required pre-employment queries for information on GEORGIA CDL- and CLP-holders only, the employer may hire a driver using solely the procedures set forth in 49 CFR 391.23(e), as outlined in the frequently asked questions.

Help with Employer Registration

Entities that employ CDL drivers must register in the Clearinghouse as employers. This includes CDL drivers who are self-employed and operate under their own USDOT Numbers. Registering as an employer enables these users to conduct queries and report drug and alcohol program violations, as well as designate consortia/third-party administrators (C/TPAs).
