The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation has names Screensoft as an approved consortium. Screensoft has met the drug testing requirements of the Texas Administration Code 86.710 and 85.726. 

The TDLR regulates drug and alcohol testing programs for licensed tow truck drivers. They also regulate employees of vehicle storage facilities and boot operators. The Texas legislature is a deterrence against substance abuse in these industries. 

It's an honor for TDLR to recognize us to help extend their safety program to the public.
