Sixty-three percent of U.S. freight is hauled by truck, making specialized carriers that haul oversize freight one of the most profitable types of transport. Pilot/escort vehicle operators (P/EVOs) guide the drivers responsible for these loads. Become part of a growing industry by getting certified as a pilot car operator.
Fourteen U.S. states require training and certification for pilot car operators. Certification ensures that you have given the skills and knowledge necessary to comply with the law, safely guide an oversize load along its route, and deal effectively with emergencies.
Evergreen Safety Council offers pilot car certification for pilot car operators in Washington and Colorado. Offered both in the classroom and online, our 8-hour course covers the latest industry standards and best practices established at the state and federal levels.
