The Georgia Department of Transportation will administer the Oversize/Overweight Load Escort Vehicle Operator Certification Program. Any operator authorized to escort a permitted oversize/overweight load in Georgia shall make application to GDOT and meet the following requirements:
Each qualified applicant will be required to complete eight classroom hours of Georgia Department of Transportation Oversize/Overweight Permit Unit’s Escort Vehicle Operator Certification Program offered by the Georgia Technical College System with an examination score of at least 80% to obtain the official certification of the State.
The certification shall be effective for four years from the issue date.
Georgia Department of Transportation will recognize escort vehicle operator certifications from other states for operators that currently have a valid out-of-state driver’s license and certification. Operators with an out-of-state driver’s license without a valid certification, and all operators with a Georgia driver’s license, will be required to obtain a certification from the state of Georgia. All escort vehicle operator certifications and a valid driver’s license is required to be available in the escort vehicle for inspection whenever the operator is performing the role of escort. Failure to conform to escort vehicle operator requirements shall result in penalties imposed under the Georgia Annotated Title 32 Highways, Bridges and Ferries.
