Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.

Usually, the screening test for benzodiazepines will be negative in someone taking clonazepam. Although clonazepam is a benzodiazepine, the test is more oriented towards detection of Valium and Librium and several other benzodiazepines that are structurally similar and are metabolized to a common substance, oxazepam. The benzodiazepines that are structurally different and are not metabolized into oxazepam are usually missed, including the clonazepam, but Xanax and Ativan are also usually missed.

There is a small amount of cross-reactivity, so it is possible that the test could be positive, but it is far more likely that the test will be negative.

If I can provide any clarification, please let me know.
