This is an 8-hour classroom course that is required for individuals who provide escort driving for certain over-dimensional or overweight loads. The purpose of this training is to enhance the safety of moving over-dimensional loads by highway and to reduce delays and inconveniences to the general flow of traffic. The escort vehicle driver is responsible for the overall movement of the load. It is important to remember that the over-dimensional load driver and the escort driver function as a team. Each person must contribute his or her skills and complete attention to ensuring the safe movement of the load. Constant alertness is necessary to anticipate and avoid problems.
As outlined in Virginia Code § 46.2-2907, a Virginia certification as an escort vehicle driver is valid in states that have a reciprocity agreement with Virginia. Any escort vehicle driver certification from those states is also valid in Virginia. However, if someone from those states wants a Virginia Escort Vehicle Driver Certification (Virginia credential), he/she will have to complete the requirements as listed in Code of Virginia § 46.2-2906.
Currently, Virginia has reciprocity agreements with the following states:

The Governor's Executive Directive for minimizing customer contact (1 student per vehicle) has expired and is, therefore, no longer effective. Driving schools must administer the in-vehicle component of driver education, behind-the-wheel, with two students in the vehicle to meet the observation requirement. This applies to juveniles and adults.
