Successful completion of this training course is required prior to taking an escort vehicle driver certification knowledge test at any Virginia DMV customer service center (CSC).

To qualify for Virginia escort vehicle driver certification, you must:

  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Hold a valid driver's license
  • Successfully complete an 8-hour escort vehicle driver certification training course approved by Virginia DMV
