How to start a pilot car business – continued.

Pilot car companies and insurance requirements.

Since pilot cars involve two different aspects of public safety such as; 1. Protecting public property like bridges and such. 2. Protecting motorists that are sharing the road during the time of transport. Some states require that all pilot car companies purchase additional insurance and even have the state listed as a certificate holder on your official insurance certificate. Below we will review each of these states and their individual insurance requirements for pilot car companies that operate within their borders.

Pilot car companies and states that require certifications.

While some states don’t require pilot car drivers to be “certified” (meet specific criteria), other states do require pilot car company drivers to complete various classes to become certified. Others simply require a vehicle inspection in order to lawfully operate a pilot car within their state.
