How To


Georgia DOT will recognize escort vehicle operator certifications from other states whose programs meet or exceed the objectives of the Georgia program for operators that currently have a valid out-of-state driver's license and certification. The programs accepted include the following states:  Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Virginia and Washington.  The Georgia program reciprocates with the following recognized states: North Carolina, Florida, Oklahoma and Washington.

New Electronic Pilot Card

Effective immediately, all Pilot Escort Certification Cards will now be issued electronically and may be displayed on a phone or tablet by the holder. The Oversize Permit Unit will no longer be issuing wallet size physical cards to escort drivers although these will still be accepted until the expiration date on the physical card is reached. Electronically displayed cards will be matched up to the escort driver’s name and last four digits of their license number on their physical driver’s license for verification by enforcement officers.

Please email completed application including all required documentation to mspurlock@gsp.net.

  1. Submit your Recertification Program Application and new certified driving record (three-year MVR) by email to mspurlock@gsp.net.
  2. Recertification card will be emailed after all above requirements are met.
