No simple answer: Valium has a long half life. There are multiple factors including body daze, metabolism, length of treatment that would effect length of time to not shoe up on test. It could take weeks.

7-40 days, will vary: How long it takes before you pass depends on 3 things: 1) your genetics: the efficiency of your cyp liver enzymes governs benzodiazepine elimination. Slow metabolizers can have the drug in their system for 50 days, depending on the initial dose. 2) the type of assay used 3) the sensitivity cutoff for the test. The department of defense, for instance, has lower cutoff values to test positive.
