When Are Pilot Cars Needed in Wyoming?

Pilot Car and Escort vehicle information in Wyoming:

Length: If a shipment is over 110′ long, you will require 1 front and one rear pilot car (escort).
Width: If a shipment is over 14′ in width, you will be required to have 1 front and 1 rear pilot car (escort).
Height: It all depends on the proposed routing.  If the height of the load exceeds 15,’ you will “probably” be required to have a front high pole escort, but not positively. If the height is 17′, you will more than likely be required to have a high pole escort in the front of the load.   Call and speak with them directly for clarification.
Weight: Check with the Wyoming port to see if your weight class will require a pilot car/escort.
Overhang: No specified limits.  This is something they like to see for themselves at the ports.  If your load is secure and safe looking but not too long overall and has flags/amber lights, then you will possibly not be required to have a pilot car.
