SAP Return to Duty Program for Truck Drivers
The SAP Return to Duty Program is an opportunity for truck drivers to work towards a second chance in the transportation industry. The Department of Transportation and FMCSA organizes the program. It is open to any truck driver with a violation on their clearinghouse record.
As part of the SAP program, drivers who have violated the DOT drug and alcohol regulations must undergo an evaluation by a qualified professional. This evaluation will determine whether the driver has a substance abuse problem and, if so, what kind of treatment is necessary. Drivers found to have a substance abuse problem must then participate in an approved treatment program and pass a return-to-work drug test before returning to duty.
