NPCA to develop permit certification portal

By Hannah Sundermeyer27 October 2022

The National Pilot Car Association (NPCA) is working towards developing a central location to provide access to information that would verify a pilot car operator’s certification credentials.

“There are fourteen states that require pilot car operators to be certified and there is no easy way to verify that a certification is true and valid,” said Bill Wegrzyn, president, NCPA.

Currently, NPCA has received access to certification information from Washington, Arizona and Oklahoma, and is working with officials in Colorado, Utah and Florida. The goal is to provide verification of name, certification number, city and state and date of expiration of the certification, the company said.

While the project is ongoing, NPCA encourages employers, transportation companies and pilot car brokers to contact the individual government agency that oversees pilot car certifications. See Table 7 State Pilot Certification Programs on the US DOT Federal Highway Administration website for links.
