  • Abstract:
    The State of Alabama does not currently require certification for the pilot car drivers who escort

    oversize/overweight vehicles. The Alabama Department of Transportation contracted with The University

    Transportation Center for Alabama (UTCA) to investigate such certification, and this report summarizes the

    investigation.

    Efforts focused on three areas:

    • Update of escort requirements section of the Overweight & Overdimensional Permits Office Rules &

    Regulations, § 32-9-29, Code of Alabama (1975). Proposed modified text for the Rules & Regulations has

    been prepared in consultation with ALDOT Permits Office personnel.

    • Compile a Truckers Guide educates truckers about the permit requirements and pilot car requirements for

    oversize/overweight loads, in addition to other trucking issues. This 28-page booklet has been completed.

    • Submit an implementation plan and budget to ALDOT for a pilot car driver certification course. A

    proposal has been submitted and funded that encompasses preparing training materials and teaching the

    first sessions of the course.
