Pilot Car Regulations in Nevada

In many cases, more than one escort vehicle is required. Some requirements apply if your route utilizes interstates or four-plus-lane highways in Nevada. As a reputable pilot car services provider, we ensure all of our escort car drivers are licensed, insured, experienced, and familiar with Nevada's DOT regulations. Before traveling, the DOT needs the exact origin and destination addresses and pilot car requirements specific to Nevada.

In particular, the vehicle used as an escort must be no larger than a 1.5-ton truck, have a minimum 60" width, and a minimum wheelbase of 95". Unique to Nevada, permits are also required to use roof-mounted lights during transport.
