A pilot car, or PEV(Pilot Escort Vehicle), is an escort vehicle that travels with over dimensional loads to ensure the safe movement of an over dimensional vehicle and the safety of the motoring public.
A pilot car operator, or PEVO(Pilot Escort Vehicle Operator), is responsible for a few different aspects involved in moving an over dimensional vehicle. These can be a range of things from acting as an advanced warning device to the motoring public, to acting as a tillerman, or steerman, responsible for steering the rear axels on a long load via remote control.
To become a PEVO, you must have reliable transportation, the proper equipment to operate in your state(or any state in which you may travel), a recognized certification, and the ability to possibly be away from home for an extended period of time.
We recommend a choice between two lightbars which are SAE certified. The Whelen Liberty is our personal favorite, but we also recommend the Feniex Fusion(Single Color). For maximum safety always use a minimum of a 48" overhead lightbar.
